Pilgrimage of Song
Start Date: 30 May 2020
End Date: 30 May 2020

St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds

A pilgrimage for all who enjoy walking and singing will start at Chevington Village Hall and make its way to St Edmundsbury Cathedral on Saturday, 30 May. A joint event between Cantus Firmus Trust and the Cathedral, the walk is part of an ongoing series of Pilgrimages of Song in Suffolk. Beginning with a workshop to learn the music for the day, the pilgrims will walk from church to church singing a short service at each. 

They will follow the old Abbots’ Way route from Chevington to Bury through Ickworth Park and Horinger before picking up the Edmund Way ending with Compline at the Cathedral and a hot meal in Pilgrim’s Kitchen. Chevington is relevant to the Abbey 1000 as the Abbots once had a retreat centre next to the village church.
