An award-winning social justice museum in the heart of Dorset, Shire Hall Museum brings over 200 years of justice to life. From 29th April until 2nd September, it will be host to an incredible exhibition on one of the country’s favourite crime writers, Agatha Christie.
From Hercule Poirot to Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s characters and stories have captivated readers and audiences for over 100 years. This exhibition will give visitors further insight into Christie’s writing and personal life, from the inspiration behind her work to the infamous story of her disappearance.
Abbie King, Director of Shire Hall Museum, said: “Everyone at Shire Hall Museum is excited for the launch of our Agatha Christie Exhibition this April. Along with creating some of the country’s most memorable works of literature, Agatha Christie lived an interesting life. This exhibition will take a closer look at both the mysteries she wrote and those relating to her own life. This is a must see for any Agatha Christie fan!”
Drawn from a private collection, the exhibition will feature books, objects, artwork and other items relating to the life and works of Agatha Christie. Entry to Shire Hall Museum’s Agatha Christie event is included with Shire Hall Museum ticket.
Inspired by the exhibition, Shire Hall will be hosting a series of Agatha Christie themed events. In May and July, the Museum hosts Drinks in the Clink: Cocktails and Crime; a unique evening of Agatha Christie inspired cocktails from DarkBear and Shire Hall will also be hosting unforgettable Murder Mystery evening, including a complimentary cocktail and two course meal.
