At the Downe Arms. Talk by Tim Tubbs


Well known local Literary expert Mr Tim Tubbs. Tim has a vast knowledge on many subjects ranging from General History, Music and Theatre, through to Social and Criminal History.

A popular talk about the famous 1926 episode, when Agatha Christie vanished for 12 days and was found under a false name in a Harrogate Hotel, allegedly suffering from amnesia. It was the defining trauma of her life, defining her successful writing career, and has provoked speculation for years, although it's now known what really happened, how and why.
