Artisan and Pilgrimage exhibition at Moyse’s Hall

A special free exhibition entitled ‘The Abbey of St Edmund: Artisan and Pilgrimage in the Liberty of St Edmund’ 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 the martyred king.

An evening lecture program will invite some of the best historians in their fields of study from across the UK, to explore the rich history and artisan work within our Abbey and beyond. Free craft workshops for younger explorers will run throughout the summer holidays, along with sensory tours, and hands-on activities.

This exhibition was made possible due to The National Lottery Heritage Fund and West Suffolk Council.

The exhibition offers a visual reference to the lost history of the Abbey ruins and beyond. From stunning stained glass to lost souvenirs of pilgrimage, it gives a glimpse at what people would have seen all those years ago.

The exhibition is supported by a series of subsidised lectures and free events, including family workshops, which can be booked through the Moyse’s Hall website at www.moyseshall.org.

Free entry. For all other areas of the museum, standard admission applies.

Running Friday 22 July to Friday 30 September 2022.

Times: Monday to Saturday 10am-5pm (last entry 4pm), Sundays 12pm-4pm (last entry 3pm)

Tickets: Free of charge, booking: not required.

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