There’s murder mystery at Gunby Hall this spring, where Lincolnshire photographer Vicki Head’s Cluedo-inspired collection, Mystery at the Mansion is being exhibited between 2 April and 29 June.

Visitors to Gunby Hall will be able to view the photographs in the rooms where the images were taken.

The collection depicts the characters and weapons of the well-loved family game and includes a Lincolnshire sub-theme.

Vicki said: “I wanted to create slightly larger than life images with a vintage feel that would lead the viewer into playing detective.

“My aim was to produce multi-layered photographs that celebrated not only the board game, but also my home county, by using Lincolnshire locations and drawing Lincolnshire parallels to each of the characters.

“As in the game where you have to guess whodunit, this exhibition is designed to make the viewers decide who they think the murderer is.”

The exhibition will be included in the normal visitor route of the impressive country house, built in 1700.

There are gorgeous eight-acre walled gardens to explore too and refreshments are served in the tea-room.

Gunby Hall is located on the A158 off the Gunby roundabout. The exhibition is free for National trust members. The house is closed on Thursdays and Fridays.
