Theatrical productions and mainstream films are shown at The Corn Exchange and the town plays hosts to a number of fetes and festivals throughout the year – one of the most popular being an annual event to celebrate the life and works of Agatha Christie who lived and worked in the town for more than 40 years.

The town is also famous for its castle ruins and ramparts that are set in beautifully managed gardens.
