Dan Clarke, Heritage Officer for West Suffolk Council, shares what’s planned for spring/summer 2022:
Moyse’s Hall are in for a busy period over the coming months, with the Horrible Histories author launching his new Suffolk-focused book, ‘Terry Deary’s Terrible Tales of Moyse’s Hall’, in April. This is in addition to two new exhibitions opening and the final touches being put on the new-look Crime and Punishment section.
‘Brick Built’ will be our family friendly exhibition made entirely in Lego from late May until late September.
Then the 1st of July sees Moyse’s joining the town’s 1000 (now 1002 thanks to the pandemic) year celebrations with our National Lottery Heritage Fund and West Suffolk Council-funded exhibition ‘The Abbey of St Edmund: Artisan and Pilgrimage in the Liberty of St Edmund’. The latter will see regional and national loans that support our look at the incredible half-millennia after Cnut founded our Abbey of St Edmund in 1020.
With thanks to Dunwich Museum, Suffolk County Council Archaeological Services, the V&A, St Edmunds Catholic Church, Suffolk’s Church of England and private collectors, for their incredible support and generosity. Find out about all of this and more at https://www.moyseshall.org/.
