The owner of a city centre restaurant is lending his support to a new project to house a museum and art gallery in the iconic town hall.

Freddie Bendahman, the man behind Freddie’s in Adelaide Street, will be hosting a special dinner tomorrow (Monday) to fundraise for the plans.

It will include a glass of Prosecco, a choice of starter and main course followed by coffee and petits fours for £29.50 and the full ticket price will be donated to the £7.75m project.

He said: “This is one of the most important and exciting things to happen in the city.

“We must preserve and share our amazing history and I am delighted to be involved in making it happen.”
