Crime, Christie & Cream Tea
14 April, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Christie’s books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and a billion in translation. Her work has been adapted for stage, screen and radio all over the world, most recently for Kenneth Branagh’s all-star adaptation Murder on the Orient Express.
Evoking the nostalgia of times gone by, jump on board a classic Routemaster bus for cream team and a tour of London sites, taking in some of the iconic locations associated with Christie’s work.
We will have our special guest, leading author TP Fielden, coming along for the ride.
TP Fielden is a leading author, broadcaster and journalist. He lives in Devon, which is the setting for his English Riviera Mysteries series of crime novels. The series, set in the 1950s, follows ace newspaperwoman and former spy Judy Dimont as she solves a series of perplexing murders in the picturesque town of Temple Regis, a dagger’s throw from Agatha Christie’s beautful hilltop home at Dittisham.
The Miss Dimont mysteries are set immediately after the golden age of Poirot and Marple, and follow Agatha’s rules of teasing and entertaining her readers – and while never seeking to imitate or borrow from her classic tales, are TP Fielden’s devoted tribute to the Queen of Crime.
