A £20,000 grant has been awarded towards a light and sound trail in Bury St Edmunds to celebrate the town’s historic links with the Magna Carta.

The funding from the Magna Carta Trust’s National 800th Anniversary Commemoration Committee will help stage the free event over three consecutive nights of two weekends at the end of October.

During the trail, medieval music and monks chanting will be heard as people journey from Charter Square to the Abbey Gardens.

Images from Magna Carta pageants held in Bury in 1907 and 1959 plus the 1970 St Edmund Festival will be projected on to the sides of buildings .
