An internationally-recognised sculptor has helped give Diss Corn Hall a new look, as the date of the venue’s long-awaited reopening gets closer.

The new extension of the entertainment hub – located in the town’s Heritage Triangle area – has had a new logo carved into the fascia by lettering sculptor Gary Breeze, who is based out of Beehive Yard in Denmark Street.

When the renovation work is finished and the building opens at the start of May, the logo will be illuminated.

Mr Breeze is renowned for major commissions such as pieces for Westminster Abbey, the Scottish Parliament and Princess Diana’s memorial in Althorp.

“I’ve spent my life running all over the country installing lettering projects of all kinds,” said Mr Breeze.

“Being able to contribute something to such a wonderful building in my adopted home town is something I’m very proud of.”

Diss Corn Hall said the unveiling of the new brand marked the countdown to the venue’s return, which will conclude nearly two years of refurbishment, as part of the ongoing Heritage Triangle regeneration project.

Events at the corn hall are scheduled to resume from May 1. For additional information, go online at www.thecornhall.co.uk
