“A Brilliant Achievement”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

This is a great achievement. All has been newly renovated and Britten's studio has been revealed and restored exactly as it was when he worked there in the 1960s. The new exhibition is very much worth spending time seeing, and the new Archive building is a treasure for all time. It deserves enthusiastic national support!
