The reason I asked about the future of Ipswich's Museums is we already know of the joint scheme between Ipswich and Colchester but in order to get their funding they formed a new charity called the Ipswich Arts and Museums Trust (I-AM). The members ... [ more ]

Apparently the move is going ahead to WH Smith. By doing so they are opening themselves up to a lot of competition unless they were really struggling in Tower Ramparts for their up-sell.
