Confirmed Keynotes:




Plus a roundtable event featuring Agatha Christie experts

On Tuesday 14 April The Exeter Little Theatre Company are holding a special performance of Murder on the Nile

Author of over eighty mystery novels, Agatha Christie was the best-selling writer of the twentieth century. Her detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple are iconic and her play The Mousetrap is the longest-running in history.

Since her death in 1976, Christie’s popularity has only increased, and her legacy has been interpreted in various, sometimes surprising new ways. In addition, new perspectives on the Queen of Crime’s life and work have opened up. As her grandson, Mathew Prichard, said in 2014, ‘Agatha Christie is so much more than an author.’

Agatha Christie: Hidden Horizons will unite researchers across the humanities with scholars and enthusiasts for an exploration of the Agatha Christie phenomenon. In addition to research presentations, the events will feature three keynote speakers and a trip to the theatre, courtesy of the Exeter Little Theatre Company.
