THE WORLD WAR 1 TRAIL
Although millions of lives were lost during this horrific conflict, the majority of those involved survived and this trail recognises this sacrifice and the impact upon all involved both in the war but also those back at home. These individual pieces of art are personal interpretations of aspects of the war and how those four years impacted upon so many lives.
This trails commemorates the centenary of the ending of “The Great War” and also enables those who participate in the trail to get a greater understanding of aspects of life at this time as well as providing an opportunity to raise funds for the Every Heart Matters Appeal.
The My WiSH Charity, Our Bury St Edmunds BID, and the overall trail sponsors Treatt PLC all hope that you enjoy taking part in our WW1 trail.

Our Bury St Edmunds BID & the My WiSH Charity proudly present a public art trail, across Bury St Edmunds Town Centre, commemorating the centenary of the ending of World War 1.
The trail commences on 21st July and concludes on Armistice Day, 11th November.
The trail is made up of 18 separate pieces of art, all created by local artists.
All the pieces of art will be available to buy, after the conclusion of the trail, as the trail is raising funds for the Every Heart Matters appeal, which is being co-ordinated by the My WiSH charity at the West Suffolk Hospital.

Finding all the pieces of art will enable people to enter a draw to win a variety of vouchers to be spent in Bury St Edmunds town centre. Trail leaflets are available at all the Tourist Information Points in the town centre.
