Historic Mill’s arts venue ready for new season
An arts venue which runs from a historic mill is celebrating a sponsorship agreement ahead of its new season.
Loddon Mill Arts, on Bridge Street, is housed in two studios at the back the old mill house, and has been successfully run as an arts venue by Andrew and Katherine Walter since 2009.
Now the couple are preparing for their latest season with sponsorship provided by McIntyre Estate Agents.
Mr Walter said: 'We have worked successfully with Musker McIntyre since we got going. Part of our success is due to the support of local businesses, councils, politicians and the local community.'
Together the couple run the venue from their home using their contacts to help bring artists to the Waveney Valley, with Mr Walter an award-winning producer and sound engineer, and Mrs Walter a PR consultant.

Mrs Walter said: 'Loddon Mill Arts is self-funding and is unique.
'We have no grants and run events purely because my husband and I have contacts in the industry and are passionate about bringing top-class acts to everyone and not wanting the arts to be elitist.'
