Bury St Edmunds Guildhall will be holding a series of talks about the Abbey of St Edmund as part of the Abbey 1000 celebrations in 2022.

Each will explore different aspects of The Guildhall's tumultuous relationship with the Abbey. The talks will be around an hour long, presented by professional actors in costume, bringing to life events and voices from history.

Riots, Revolt, and Rebellion - Tuesday June 14

The Guildhall and the Abbey always had an up-and-down relationship, but things came to a head in the 1300s. Find out how the Guildhall helped stoke the fires of Bury St Edmunds’ own Peasants’ Revolt. 

Tickets will cost £15, which includes a drink before the talk in the Guildhall gardens. Doors will open at 6:30pm with the talk starting at 7pm.
