Suffolk Harvest Festival...

Suffolk Harvest Festival will be celebrated at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday 10 October. Starting at 12 noon, the Cathedral will be open to visitors with family activities, stalls and sheep in the Nave of the Cathedral as well as a tractor, beer tent and food in the Cathedral grounds.


The Festival continues at 2.00 pm with a special ‘Songs of Praise’ style service. The 45-minute service, hosted by BBC Radio Suffolk’s Mark Murphy, includes traditional hymns, readings and prayers. Wheelbarrows of produce and donations will be offered during the singing. Donations to the Gatehouse foodbank (tinned only please) can be made on the day. The event is free.


‘We are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to meet in person again this year to give thanks for Suffolk’s Harvest’, comments the Very Reverend Joe Hawes, the Dean of St Edmundsbury. ‘We recognise the difficulties faced by the farming community and encourage people to donate to support the local foodbank, which is a vital lifeline for so many.’


The service at 2.00 pm will also be livestreamed on the Cathedral’s Facebook page.
