About this event

To celebrate 1,000 years of the Abbey of St Edmund, a small travelling exhibition will tour local schools, libraries and other venues.

It will give children and adults the chance to find out more about the Abbey and to offer their views about it on social media and via the Abbey of St Edmund Heritage Partnership website.

Based on the 2018 Abbey Heritage Assessment, the exhibition will tell the story of the life and martyrdom of St Edmund, the founding of the Abbey guarding his shrine, the building of the great Abbey church, the dissolution of the abbey by Henry VIII, and the many investigations that have taken place on the site over the past 200 years.

To book the exhibition for your venue, please email stedmundexhibition@gmail.com.

Thanks to The National Lottery Heritage Fund and National Lottery players for their support of this exhibition.
