An Invitation To Tea With Agatha Christie

This September, 120 years after Britain’s most famous crime writer was born, and 90 years after her first whodunit, Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair is hosting a special afternoon tea to celebrate Agatha Christie’s life and work.

Guests are invited to investigate mouthwatering delicacies such as Death on the Nile cake, Evil under the Sun tartlet and The Clocks macaroons, all accompanied by The Red Signal raspberry cream. Tea will be served in the rarefied atmosphere of Brown’s traditional oak-panelled English tea room – thought to have inspired At Bertram’s Hotel.

To most London tourists, fascination with Agatha Christie’s books and plays is no mystery. During her 50 year career, she wrote a remarkable 80 novels, while her record-breaking West End triumph, The Mousetrap, has delighted audiences for decades.

The Christie-themed tea is being offered between 12th and 19th September as a tribute to the writer and a wonderful treat for her fans. And on Sunday 19th September, the highlight of the week will be a literary event featuring author John Curran, who’ll be signing copies of his book, Agatha Christie’s Secret Notebooks. A signed copy of Mathew Prichard’s Agatha Christie: An Authobiography, will also be available for each guest.
