On December 3, 1926 the then 36-year-old Agatha Christie left her home in Sunningdale and drove her Morris Cowley towards Surrey. The next morning the vehicle was found abandoned with a fur coat and a driving licence left inside. Agatha had vanished!

Her disappearance sparked an extensive manhunt, with over 1,000 police officers and 15,000 volunteers searching for the author, as well as newspaper adverts urging any members of the public with information to come forward, before she was found in Yorkshire. What really happened?

This fascinating talk looks in detail at what really happened and takes an in depth look at her most famous novels and examines the portrayals of her celebrated detectives, Miss Jane Marple and the Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot on stage, screen and television.

This talk is available as a fully illustrated ZOOM talk and is available at short notice
