Step Back in Time is a short series of lectures by Dr Pat Murrell in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care. ‘Players, playhouses and audiences in late Stuart and Georgian Bury St Edmunds’ is the next in the series.

This talk explores the ad-hoc venues, Bury’s first permanent playhouse in the Market Cross, public amateur dramatic productions, professional performances and the opening years of William Wilkins’ Westgate Street venture.
Refreshments of cakes and biscuits made to recipes of the period are included in the ticket price.
This event takes place on Thursday 24 October at 8pm, at the United Reformed Church, Whiting Street, Bury St Edmunds.
