Griff Rhys Jones is airing some thoughts – stories, anecdotes, reminiscences and half-remembered events from a long career with his much missed comedy partner Mel Smith. It’s a ramble through a relationship. Join him on this work in progress complete with previously unseen footage.
This evening’s show includes a special auction in support of the capital development at Gainsborough’s House. Gainsborough’s House is hugely grateful for the generous support of Griff Rhys Jones.
Tickets are available from the Quay Theatre. All profits go the Gainsborough’s House capital project.
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.
