Do you love a good mystery? How about a scrumptious English tea? Well, then our next Tea Time Tales event is for you!

For five decades, Agatha Christie’s primary obsession was murder, but her interest in houses was a close second, particularly the English country house. Taken together, some of her most popular works offer a keen look at the changing fortunes of English country houses in the 20th century. They offer insight into how life at the time was changing in these quintessentially British houses, both upstairs and downstairs. Join Agecroft Hall's executive director, Anne Kenny-Urban, for an exploration of what Christie mysteries reveal about changes in the houses themselves and the people who lived and worked in them. Afterwards, enjoy tea and good conversation with fellow mystery lovers.

Tickets: $45 per person; 20% discount for museum members.
