£8.5m Gainsborough plan – what do you think?
Neighbours of Gainsborough’s House at Sudbury in Suffolk are being invited to give their opinion of an £8.5m expansion of the museum set in the painter’s birthplace.
A one-day exhibition on Thursday, November 17, will give local people a chance to talk to the architects and project manager of the scheme which would convert an adjacent building to provide new exhibitions space and studios, offering community members the chance to learn valuable skills.
“This nationally significant project represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for Gainsborough’s House” says its director Mark Bills. “It has enormous support, yet we still need to secure £1m by March 2018 to ensure the project goes ahead.”
