Abbey of St Edmund 1000th Anniversary Celebrations

A year of celebrations

A year of celebrations has been planned for 2022 to mark 1,000 years since the founding of the Abbey of St Edmund in Bury St Edmunds by King Cnut.

The celebrations are being coordinated by Abbey 1000 C.I.C. (made up of different organisations in the town), alongside The Abbey of St Edmund Heritage Partnership.

Our grateful thanks to The National Lottery Heritage Fund and National Lottery Players for their support of our Abbey 1000 celebrations and to West Suffolk Council and Bury St Edmunds Town Council for their funding. A big thank you also to all our commercial sponsors including our headline sponsors CLASS UK, Greene King and Treatt. Download the Abbey 1000 What's On Guide now!
