Arrows for St Edmund Half Term Workshop...

The workshops take place on Wednesday 28 and Friday 30 October from 10 am to 1 pm in the main body of the Cathedral. Anyone can take part, there is no charge.


In order to offer this activity safely, we ask visitors to follow the guidance on socially distancing and adults are reminded that they must wear a face covering in the Cathedral. Reverend Sarah Geileskey, Cathedral curate, who has oversight of children’s and families work at the Cathedral, comments: ‘We love encouraging children to learn about St Edmund, whose story is such an inspiration. There are plans afoot to mark St Edmund’s Day in a special way this year, so we hope that we can get a head start with lots of arrows being prepared this half term.’


The legend of St Edmund says that King Edmund was captured by the Danes in AD869, tied to a tree and shot with arrows. His body was later brought to the town, which now bears his name, and in 1020 the great Abbey of St Edmund was founded to house his shrine.


Plans for events to mark the 1000th anniversary of the founding of the Abbey were postponed due to the pandemic and many will be re-scheduled in 2021.
