Wolves at large in Bury St Edmunds...

Wolves at large in Bury St Edmunds

 

In honour of St Edmund, St Edmundsbury Cathedral has a number of events planned in the month of his feast day. 

 

Firstly a wolf trail - 13 knitted wolves will be hiding in shop and restaurant windows across Bury’s town centre. They will be guarding ‘words’ which form part of a competition. Find the missing words and fit them into the story of St Edmund. There is an anagram to complete too. Pick up a competition leaflet from www.stedscathedral.co.uk, from the Cathedral Shop or from the Tourist Information Centre on Angel Hill.  

 

The winning entry will receive vouchers and a book token and there are two runners-up prizes too. The trail is supported by ourburystedmunds, the Business Improvement District for the town and the Bury St Edmunds Town Council. The competition runs from 26 October to 16 November.

 

‘We wanted to encourage local children to find out about the story of St Edmund,’ comments Sarah Friswell, PR Manager at St Edmundsbury Cathedral. ‘We are keen to play our part in getting greater recognition of our Suffolk saint, once patron saint of this country.’

 

On St Edmund’s Day, Wednesday 20 November, there will be a special musical presentation of the story of St Edmund, called ‘Courage of a King’, by local school children at 10.30 am in the Cathedral. On the same day the Cathedral will launch a new book entitled ‘St Edmund’s Town, St Edmund's County’, priced £4.
