About this event

Bury St Edmunds and Beyond by Christopher Parkinson of Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi

Part of the Abbey 1000 Celebrations and the Museum's The Abbey of St Edmund: Artisan and Pilgrimage Exhibition.

Many residents and visitors to Bury St Edmunds will be aware of the town’s churches and their beautiful 19th Century stained glass windows. Perhaps not so well known is the rich heritage of medieval stained glass in many churches of the surrounding villages and towns.

Christopher Parkinson is an author for the Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi and is currently preparing a catalogue of Stained Glass up to 1800 in Essex for publication. A frequent visitor to Bury St Edmunds since the 1970’s, Christopher will explore the rich heritage of stained glass in the town and surrounding area.

Examples will be put into historical and artistic context to help in the further appreciation and understanding of this fascinating art which adorns so many of our churches.

Starts: 7pm (doors open 6.30pm)

Tickets: Adult £5, Full Time Student £4
