Where to see St George in Bury St Edmunds...

Shoppers and visitors to Bury St Edmunds town centre on Saturday will be able to meet St George and his dragon or watch street theatre to commemorate Shakespeare during a day of free entertainment.

St George will start and end his visit in the Buttermarket at 10.30am and 2.30pm. In between those times he will visit St Johns Street (11.30), arc (12.30) and Abbeygate Street and Angel Hill (1.30).

The date is also the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death and his work will be commemorated by two actors who will perform excerpts from As You Like It and The Taming of the Shrew. The scenes will be performed at: Angel Hill (11.00am), Langton Place (12.00), Cornhill (1.00) and Charter Square, arc (2.00pm).

The town will be flying the flag of St George and businesses and the regular Saturday market stalls will be bedecked with red and white bunting in celebration. The events are being hosted by the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Ourburystedmunds in conjunction with The Theatre Royal and St Edmundsbury Borough Council.
