Work is gathering pace

We’re busy working on your great rewards and they will be sent out to you around 13 December, when the gallery opens.

Work on the gallery continues to gather pace – conservators have been enlisted and the object list has almost been finalised, with some amazing loans coming from Tate, the V&A's theatre collection, and the Arts Council collection.

We are talking to a number of private collectors about loans spanning the variety of Piper’s incredible career; from tapestry to the artist’s set model for Benjamin Britten's 'Death in Venice' (complete with miniature lighting rig).

Thank you once again for all your support.
