A users group has welcomed the news West Norfolk council has received an approach to revitalise the Guildhall of St George and turn it into a gallery of “national significance”.
Ivor Rowlands, of Lynn Art Culture and Heritage (LArCH) said: “We are pleased that the borough council has managed to secure a viable future for the guildhall that will see it continue to be a cultural asset for the town and the whole community, as it has been for hundreds of years.
“We see this very much in the spirit of those who saved the Guildhall and founded the King’s Lynn Arts Centre and Festival in 1951.
“We are looking forward to working collaboratively with the new investor to help support the future plans.”
LArCH was founded in 2016 following a public meeting that was called to discuss the guildhall’s future. Its objective is to find the best outcome for the guildhall.
