Ancient House in India

Thetford’s Ancient House Museum owes its existence to the generosity of Prince Frederick Duleep Singh, son of the last Maharajah of the Punjab.

We are now launching a project to raise funds, estimated at £50,000, to redisplay one of the rooms at the museum to give more space to the fascinating Duleep Singh story and our Anglo Sikh connections.

In light of this, our very own Karen-Emma White has been awarded a British Council travel bursary, through the Connections through Culture programme, to travel to India and learn more about our historical connections as well as fostering new ones.
