Help us to show the Soper art to the world

The Soper Collection, being the largest collected works of Soper family art and also home to a wide variety of memorabilia, paints a detailed historical picture of the artists, from the late 19th century, through wartime Britain and into the 20th century.

By creating a permanent home for The Collection, The Centre will be like no other, providing public access to the little known, but much revered, genius of the Soper family. Artists, children and art, history and wildlife-lovers alike will be able to learn from the work of true masters of their craft. Artists who, at their very core, were experts in expressing the life and movement of the natural world.

But we need your help to get there…

Support Our Work

So far, The Soper Collection has funded the non-returnable deposit for the proposed site near Lavenham, Suffolk, but we need to raise £600,000 to complete the purchase.

We hope businesses and individuals will get behind this project, to fund the work and make it a success.

The next funding stages will be for the architecturally estimated £3.9 million, including contingency, for the restoration and construction of the centre.

See our fundraising total and find out how you can donate on our fundraising page.

Provided the site purchase is achieved and the venture reaches fruition, all contributors will be invited to become founder donors of this project and you will also be invited to join us on our opening night!

Once we have secured the site, we will apply for further funding from the various grant bodies and also from the public to fund the building, refurbishment and landscaping of The Centre. We plan to open to the public in 2021/22.



Join us on our exciting journey to provide a permanent, public home for the works of the Soper family.
