People have the chance to view, and have their say on, plans for the £8.5m redevelopment of Gainsborough’s House museum in Sudbury on Friday.
They will have the opportunity to talk to the architects and Project Manager at an exhibition at the museum between 10am and 7pm on Friday. The museum is planning to transform a former council building behind the museum.
Museum director Mark Bills said: “This nationally significant project represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for Gainsborough’s House. It has enormous support, yet we still need to secure £1m by March 2018 to ensure the project goes ahead.”
