Dissent, Riot and Rebellion

Civil unrest, rioting in the streets, even bloody violence!

Not the first association you would make with modern Bury St Edmunds. However, for centuries the town was at the centre of national and regional events. With this role came unrest, much of it with violent consequences. Walk with us and enjoy stories from the 1100s right up to the very recent past. You will be surprised at how volatile the town’s history has been and how that was expressed, sometimes with tragic results, and sometimes just plain comical ones. All of it played out on the streets and in the buildings we know today.

Dissent, Riot and Rebellion is on Saturday, 14 September. It starts at 2.00pm on Angel Hill, opposite the Abbey Gate (what3words///doubt.display.trail), and lasts 90 minutes.
