About this event

You’re invited to pop into the Abbey Gardens on 16th July to celebrate the 1000th Anniversary of the Abbey of St Edmund. Bring a picnic and enjoy live music and entertainment with local traders and groups as we honour the year long occasion in the wonderful Abbey Gardens along with the remains of the Abbey and history of St Edmund.

What better way to spend the day in the summer sun, listening and sharing stories with a bite to eat from food and drink stalls. Starting at 10am you’ll be able to enjoy a day of enjoyment and festivity with local performers, charities and community groups along with family fun activities, tours of the Abbey and much more.

FREE event, open to everyone. Organised by West Suffolk Council.

There will be goody bags for the first 1000 people at the event kindly provided by The Bury Society.

Community Celebrations for All - The Celebrations for All project, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, will allow hundreds of people with mobility issues to take part in this event.

Part of the Abbey 1000 celebrations to celebrate 1,000 years since the founding of the Abbey of St Edmund in Bury St Edmunds. For more Abbey 1000 events see our Abbey 1000 Guide.
