The Abbey of St Edmund Exhibition
Start Date: 1 July 2020
Start Time: Museum Opening Times
End Date: 30 September 2020

Moyse's Hall Museum, Bury St Edmunds

A special exhibition entitled The Abbey of St Edmund: Artisan and Pilgrimage in the Liberty of St Edmund at Moyse's Hall Museum from 1 July - 30 September 2020.

The exhibition will showcase the beauty and gravitas of St Edmunds’ Abbey, as well as explore the people that travelled great distances to see the tomb of our martyred king.  

Special events will see evening workshops for adults that show how crafts people created the beautiful carvings, stained glass and stonework. 

Lectures will explore the rich history and artisan work within our Abbey and beyond. 

Craft workshops for younger explorers will run throughout the summer holidays, along with trails, sensory tours, treasure hunts and hands-on activities. 

The Museum's work with Horrible Histories author and creator, Terry Deary, will show the other side of medieval life. Under the banner of the ‘Terrible Tales’ of Moyse’s Hall, visitors young and old can smell, touch and see what made a medieval Abbey town so beautifully disgusting.
