An arts and crafts exhibition that raises cash to support a historic 14th-century property in Lavenham looks set to see record number of visitors.
The Potters and Friends event at Little Hall, a museum owned by the Suffolk Building Preservation Trust charity, brings together potters as well as other craftspeople, including printmakers from Gainsborough’s House in Sudbury.
The exhibition, which also includes demonstrations, raises a good amount of money every year for Little Hall.
Organiser Gill Hedge, of the Anglian Potters group, said about 1,400 people had visited so far since the event opened on Friday.
“We are very pleased,” she said. “We have had a record amount of people through. It’s great to see visitors who come back again and again.”

The event, which has been running since May 2011, is an opportunity for the makers to sell their wares as well as benefitting the hall. The fees for the exhibitors all go back into the hall and donations are also collected at the event.
As entry to the hall is free for the exhibition, it is also an opportunity for people to pop along to see the house and gardens.
