TALK: An evening with Ivor Braka, art collector and dealer
Please join us for a special evening of conversation with Ivor Braka, Art Collector and Dealer and the owner of both The Gunton Arms and The Suffield Arms in Norfolk. The talk will focus on Ivor’s extraordinary vision; the restoration of Gunton Park and The Gunton Arms which opened in 2011.
The pub is home to some of Ivor’s extensive art collection, including works by Lucian Freud, Tracey Emin, Paula Rego and Damien Hirst. With interiors by the late Robert Kime and the kitchen run by Stuart Tattersall, (formally head chef at Mark Hix), it has been named as one of the best country pubs in the UK, most recently by Conde Nast Traveller.
The pub sits in a Grade II listed Georgian landscape which Ivor has been restoring for the past 25 years, and in 2021, Ivor opened The Suffield Arms less than a mile away from Gunton Park.
Tickets: £10 per ticket
