Opening the Agatha Christie Festival, we have The Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers, who will be killing it on stage at the Palace Theatre Paignton on Friday 8 September.

Between them Val McDermid (vocals), Chris Brookmyre (guitar/vocals), Mark Billingham (guitar/vocals), Luca Veste (bass), Doug Johnstone (drums/vocals), and Stuart Neville (guitar/vocals) have sold over 20 million books worldwide and won every major crime-writing award.

But for one night only, this crime-writing super-group will be rocking out on the stage instead of the page!  They’ve fought the law; they’ve watched the detectives; and they’ve been down in the tube station at midnight. They’ve played Glasgow, Belfast, Reykjavik, London, Toronto and Glastonbury (yes, Glastonbury) and now they’re about to rock the English Riviera.

Murder on the dancefloor is guaranteed… Buy tickets here:

Earlier in the day you can also enjoy a fabulous afternoon tea experience in Stage Left with the famous Crime Writers.  The Afternoon Tea experience ticket price includes scones, cream and jam, cocktail sandwiches/rolls of various fillings, a selection of cakes and savouries. Plus tea or coffee. Book your afternoon tea tickets here: A murderous Afternoon Tea with 6 of the UK’s best selling Crime Writers – Events in Paignton – The Palace Theatre Paignton
