WW1 Trail around Bury St Edmunds to mark the Centenary

WW1 Trail around Bury St Edmunds to mark the Centenary

DATE PUBLISHED: 09/07/2018

Featuring 18 pieces of artwork by local artists in prime town centre sites, including arc shopping centre and The Apex, the trail will be unveiled on July 21st, and finishes on Armistice Day, on November 11th 2018.

The stories behind the pieces tell of the grim reality of war and of life in England during WWI and serve both to engage and educate as well as take visitors around historic Bury St Edmunds.

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 will be available at all the Visitor Information Points in the town centre from July. For more information on the trail, the pieces and artists visit the Bury St Edmunds WWI Trail website.

The World War I Trail has been organised by the My WiSH Charity and Our Bury St Edmunds, the business improvement district (BID) in the town, which organised the very popular Wolf Trail in 2015. At the culmination of the trail an auction will take place to sell off all of the pieces to go to the Every Heart Matters appeal.
