‘Fairytale’ home artist to open shop
4:00pm Friday 11th October 2013 in News
A TURNER prize winning artist is set to open a village store.
Grayson Perry will officially launch the Wrabness Community Shop on Saturday.
The community shop moved from its old site in Station Road to Black Boy Lane last month.
Perry, who won the Turner Prize in 2003 and was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in June, has close links to the village after planning permission was given for his ‘fairytale’ style house to be built in Black Boy Lane.
Kati Vardon, board member, said:“We moved four weeks ago and it is a nice bright, large space and it has got the new cafe which will be opened at some point after the official opening."
The launch is being held from 2pm on Saturday where Perry will cut the ribbon and give a speech.
