AUDIENCE participation will be encouraged at an historic photographic exhibition in a bid to find out more about the people, events and industries which has shaped the last 100 years of a market town.

Scores of old photos depicting Sudbury's past will be shown at the town's Quay Theatre following the latest acquisitions of Caught on Camera - the Sudbury Museum Trust's photographic archive.

The townscape and pastimes of the town in the last century will be highlighted in more than 70 photographs on the theatre's big screen - with visitors encouraged to share their experiences and offer photos for future exhibitions.

Museum trustee Val Herbert said: “One of the aims is to discover more photographs, particularly of the town's now mostly-defunct industries including brick making, marine engineering and the production of stays and corsetry.
