Bank Holiday attraction as British Legion and Brandeston Hall join forces for art show

Brandeston Hall, which has always provided the art show’s venue, is now to become a partner in the enterprise and will provide an additional exhibition of work by some highly gifted pupils.

From its very modest beginnings – in the first year 31 paintings were sold at an average price of £26 – over 3,000 pictures from the exhibition have now been purchased at well below gallery prices.

The Legion’s branch President, Major General Jack Dye CBE MC DL, welcoming the involvement of the school said: “This has to be good news for the ex-service personnel and their dependents in the area who have been substantially helped over the years by the proceeds of the show and which we now confidently expect to be an even bigger success ” .

The Master at Brandeston Hall Nigel Woolnough adds: “This preparatory school was started as a memorial to the 234 former Framlingham College pupils who gave their lives in the two World Wars so it seemed to us particularly appropriate that we should play our part in helping this fund-raising effort.”
