Ladies of the Town

Who were the women who shaped Bury St Edmunds?

It would be easy to believe in a town whose history is centred around the story of a sainted King and involves a lot of monks, that few women had their chance to make a mark in Bury St Edmunds.

But of course women have been a driving force here in many ways throughout the centuries. A royal embroiderer, three great artists, a few 18th Century eccentrics and 20th century power-houses all play their part in the story of the town.

Ladies of the Town is on Saturday, 15 June. It starts at 2.00pm on Angel Hill, opposite the Abbey Gate (what3words///doubt.display.trail), and lasts 90 minutes.
