Volunteer fair held for new immersive heritage centre at the Guildhall, Bury St Edmunds
A volunteer fair was held at the weekend to encourage people to get involved with a project to bring the history of a Bury St Edmunds building to life.
The Guildhall, in Guildhall Street, is seeking volunteers to help tell its story after it received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
The building will open next year as an immersive heritage centre and events attraction, and the exciting new project will see live actors, interactive displays and collections as well as education programmes.
There will also be a sensory experience for people with disabilities.
The project’s long-term aim is to allow the building to once again become a focus for the borough’s heritage and community.
