Scaffolding has been erected in the great octagonal Exhibition Room following the completion of works to soundproof the floor from what will be a commercial space below. This will provide access to the roof-light which requires replacement and will also facilitate works to the ceiling and walls of the room. The first big change is the removal of the enormous 1950s two tiered chandelier with its twelve large glass lightshades. This chandelier is for sale with proceeds going to support conservation. Get in touch if you know of a buyer!

This project is supported by The Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Foundation and the following supporters:
