On this exclusive Friends visit we will be given a special tour of the exhibition of Scottish paintings and an insight to some of the ‘behind -the-scenes’ preparations for a Sotheby’s auction. After a break for lunch, we will take a short walk to Handel House to visit the home of the famous composer. Places are limited.

Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was born in Sudbury and baptised at the Independent Meeting-House in Friars Street on 14 May 1727, the fifth son and ninth child of John and Mary Gainsborough. In 1958, Gainsborough’s House Society was formed to purchase the house and establish it as a centre for Thomas Gainsborough. The Museum opened to the public in 1961 and has remained open for over 50 years. The beautiful historic garden at the heart of Gainsborough’s House is maintained by a devoted body of volunteers, who garden exclusively with plants that were available in Gainsborough’s lifetime.
