Hidden objects in historic house hold the answers to clues

Ely Weekly News
15th July 2010

An art gallery will be open as usual on Sunday, July 25 - but entry comes with a twist.

Instead of the usual tours around Ted Coney's Family Portraits, in Ely, Mr Coney will host a family quiz to celebrate the London 2012 Open Weekend.

Visitors will have half-an-hour to explore the house, on Ely's Waterside, and answer questions The Collection as a family team. All the answers will be hidden in objects, paintings and photographs which adorn the 300-year-old cottage.

Admission will be 50p per family member which will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust. For more information, call (01353) 650038.
