Puerto de la Cruz presents the 8th edition of the Agatha Christie International Festival

International Agatha Christie Festival 2021

The eighth edition of the Agatha Christie International Festival, which commemorates the writer's visit to the city in 1927, will take place from November 5 to 14, 2021. The event also serves to celebrate the birthday of the British crime writing genius, when a bouquet of flowers will be placed at the bust to her memory at the viewpoint of La Paz.

The festival organisers, with the involvement of countless entities and educational centres and with the sponsorship of Puerto de la Cruz Council and Tenerife Tourism is, without a doubt, its most participatory edition, with a program full of activities being prepared for all ages and nationalities, which include literature, music, history, photography, painting, mystery, routes, gastronomy and many more.  

Dr. Mark Aldridge, professor at Solent University, Southampton, will also join the think tank this year to discuss Poirot and Agatha Christie. His book ′Agatha Christie’s Poirot: The Greatest Detective in the World′ is an animated story of the character and his creator based on the author's original research.

This fascinating festival is named after the legendary British writer Agatha Christie in honour of the fact that she chose Puerto de la Cruz for its wonderful weather as a place where she could enjoy peace and calm. During the festival, there are film showings based on her novels, theatre plays in Spanish, English and German, as well as exhibitions and discussions. The event is held once every two years.
