Tributes will be paid to a respected theatre volunteer before a series of talks in Sudbury.

A much-loved face will be missing from Sudbury’s Quay Theatre history talks, which kicked off on Sunday.

Before her sudden death in September after suffering a stroke, acting manager Nicki Murphy had agreed to talk in this year’s series about the many lives of the Quay Theatre building.

The talks were a great passion of the 65-year-old, who worked tirelessly to keep the theatre running.

A tribute will be paid to her on Sunday by Lord Phillips of Sudbury, who founded the talks which have been helping to fund the Quay for 15 years.

He said: “It is a great sadness that she is not here this year because she was always so enthusiastic about the project.”

At the end of the 2014 talks, Nicki announced the series had raised £4,000.
