On December 3, 1926 the 36-year-old Agatha Christie left her home in Berkshire and drove her Morris Cowley car towards Surrey.
The next morning the vehicle was found abandoned with her fur coat, briefcase and a driving licence left inside. Agatha had vanished without trace!
Her sudden disappearance sparked a massive manhunt, with over 1,000 police officers and 15,000 volunteers, planes and dogs searching for the author, as well as newspaper adverts urging members of the public with information to come forward, before she was found staying in a luxury hotel in Harrogate, Yorkshire. What really did happen and why did she never talk about it?
This fascinating and talk looks in detail at what happened and takes an in depth look at her most famous novels & short stories and examines the portrayals of her celebrated detectives, Miss Jane Marple and the Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot on stage, screen and television.
