Agatha Christie: A Life in Photographs

12th June 2017

This summer the National Museum of Cardiff brings the Agatha Christie: A Life in Photographs exhibition to Wales. The exhibition features rarely seen photographs from the Queen of Crime's private collection, illustrating the life behind the works of the bestselling author of all time. Each image is accompanied by a quote in Christie's own words, taken from her published works and her unpublished personal correspondence, which beautifully captures her thoughts and feelings from early childhood, through two marriages, on international adventures, and to her years as a world famous author.

A timeline will sit alongside the pictures and mark the key milestones in Christie’s life, including the first performance of the world’s longest running play, The Mousetrap, and the publication of definitive works such as Murder on the Orient Express and And Then There Were None.

The exhibition, which previously appeared at London's Bankside Gallery and in Torquay's Torre Abbey, opens at National Cardiff Museum on 17 June until the 3rd September 2017. Click here for more details.
