Businesses and retailers in Sudbury are set to display local artwork as part of the two-week Art About Town event.

Fourteen businesses have pledged to take part in the event, including shops such as Waitrose and Winch and Blatch, as well as charities The Bridge Project in Gainsborough Street and Exploring U Counselling in Station Road.

Artwork will go on display between May 18 and 31, giving the public an opportunity to have a sneak preview of work by local artists who will be participating in the Artists Around Sudbury Trail in June.

Town centre development manager Jane Hatton said: “Art About Town is a prelude to Suffolk Open Studios and Sudbury is proud to be displaying more local art than any other town in Suffolk.”
