Agatha Christie Weekend 8 – 10 September
The fourth Agatha Christie Weekend will be held throughout Wallingford and Cholsey from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 September 2017. This year’s event will feature talks by Lucy Worsley and John Curran, guided walks, exhibitions, heritage train rides, cream teas and much more.
On Friday 8 September John Curran, a celebrated Agatha Christie specialist and popular speaker with a vast knowledge of Agatha Christie's life and work, will be giving a talk on 'The Life and Crimes of Agatha Christie' at 8pm at Wallingford Masonic Hall. Tickets cost £12 and a bar will be available.
The Agatha Christie Weekend gives you the opportunity to learn about the real life, of this world-renowned author, who lived quietly as 'Mrs Mallowan' from 1934 until her death in 1976. You can also discover, via guided walks and trails, which buildings in Wallingford have a ‘Christie Connection’, such as the Masonic Hall and the Corn Exchange, view original letters at Wallingford Museum that she wrote to the Chairman of the Sinodun Players and visit her final resting place at Cholsey Church.
And if that’s not enough, at 8pm on Saturday 9th September St. Mary’s Church, Cholsey is playing host to television presenter, author and Chief Curator of the Historic Royal Palaces Lucy Worsley. Tickets for ‘Lucy Worsley: A Very British Murder' cost £15 which includes a drink. *SOLD OUT*
