James Mellish, project manager, said: “The Guildhall has many stories to tell and needs volunteers to help tell them.

“Even if you’ve never volunteered before but are enthusiastic to participate, you could surprise yourself.”

The principal rooms of the grade one listed building including The Court Room, The Banqueting Hall, The WWII HQ room and a Tudor Kitchen will be on display showing the Guildhall’s history within the town.

People that would like to volunteer can go to the Guildhall on Saturday, December 2, from 11am till 3.30pm to find out more. Alternatively, contact James Mellish on 07702 588683 or email info@burystedmundsguildhall.org.uk. 09/11/2017
