The Guildhall in Bury St Edmunds is a nationally important, grade 1 listed, historic building that has been at the heart of community life within the town for over eight centuries.

First constructed to act as a civic focus for the town, the Guildhall has acted as courtroom, library, meeting place and assembly house during its long and varied history. However, in recent decades the building has largely fallen into disuse.

The Guildhall Project aims to develop the site as a multi-galleried heritage and exhibition centre to serve the local community. The project’s long-term objective is to allow this important building to once again become a focus for the borough’s heritage and community.
