September 2017 will be an exciting peak of arts events that will help to put Torbay on the cultural map. THE TALE is an exciting new event for explorers of all ages, guiding visitors on a journey of discovery from the streets of Torquay, through hidden coves and historic harbours, to the quarry of Berry Head. New artworks and performances will be revealed during three weekends in September. INTERNATIONAL AGATHA CHRISTIE FESTIVAL, running from 13-17 September, has expanded into a major platform for new works with guest writers, performers, artists, song, stories and dance celebrating the extraordinary life and legacies of Dame Agatha Christie Mallowan.
