A MUSEUM will celebrate the life of Agatha Christie with a series of events next month.

Wallingford Museum is holding a special day of activities on Saturday, September 8 ahead of Agatha Christie Day 2018, which takes place seven days later.

The crime writer lived with her archaeologist husband Max Mallowan in Winterbrook House, Wallingford from 1934 until her death in 1976 and is buried in Cholsey churchyard.

Fans of the author can join guided walks from the town hall throughout the day and a town history walk sets off at 11am.

A special Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders walk begins at 2.30pm, while a self-guided trail to Dame Agatha's grave is also available.

An exhibition dedicated to the writer, At home with the 'Queen of Crime', is also open at the museum, which is located on Wallingford High Street.

Dame Agatha wrote many of her novels at Winterbrook House and shopped regularly in Wallingford, while she worshipped at her parish church in Cholsey.

The exhibition gathers stories from those who came into contact with the iconic writer and includes personal photographs and handwritten letters.

More events are being planned, with information available online at wallingfordmuseum.org.uk
