The Crime Writers’ Association

Morecambe & Vice Crime Writing Festival

On the Weekend of Sat 30th Sept & Sun 1st October get your little grey cells at the ready and your poisoned pens filled to the brim with ink as the Quirkiest crime festival in the UK will be making its debut in Morecambe.

Set in the auspicious surroundings of the Winter Gardens (most recently seen in BBC One’s adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution) there will be panels and talks & trials and debates as authors and guests from around the globe gather to converse, consider and confabulate over crime in all its many facets.

The festival of felonies will also see Murder Mystery Events taking place. On Friday 29th September you can enjoy death over dinner at the iconic Art Deco Midland Hotel (seen in ITV’s Agatha Christie’s Poirot Episode ‘Double Sin’) where you’ll become embroiled in the death of a reclusive author. On the evening of Saturday 30th September you’ll be visiting the local library for more than just books, when Dr Black ends up dead and you are faced with answering the three unltimate questions : Who? What? Where?

There’ll be a plethora of extra events for all super sleuths and criminal masterminds alike to enjoy throughout the weekend including Cluedoh competitions, midnight readings and writing workshops. We’ll be announcing all the details soon!

Tickets are on sale now and a full line up of guests and events will be released soon so keep an eye on the website or over on our Facebook page @morecambecrimefest.

So get on board that Night Train To Murder and uncover the many mysteries that lay in wait at Morecambe Bay this Autumn.
