A Poirot actor will visit Morecambe as part of a crime writing festival.

Hugh Fraser, best known for playing Captain Hastings in the TV series Agatha Christie’s Poirot, will visit the town later this year.

Hugh Fraser said on Twitter: “I haven’t revisited since we filmed ‘Double Sin’ but the Midland Hotel looks amazing after the renovation.”

It takes place at the Morecambe Winter Gardens from Saturday September 29-30 and hosts an array of activities including, question and answer panels, a theatre tour, a murder mystery event and more.
