Explore hidden history at this talk by local historian Martyn Taylor, at Bury St Edmunds Guildhall.

During the 1000-year history of Bury St Edmunds, the town has acquired a mix of unexpected, weird and wonderful examples of buildings and the people associated with them. The old adage of looking up when going round any town is as true to Bury St Edmunds as with anywhere; for it is ‘up’ where many interesting gems of architecture, embellishments and ornamentations will be found.

This talk takes you on a journey behind the façades of the familiar to discover the lesser-known stories of Bury St Edmunds’ fascinating past.

This talk is part of the Guildhall’s special exhibition, ‘Ration Books to Rock ‘n’ Roll’, sharing the incredible story of unsung local heroes and a top-secret room tucked away in the heart of our town, which played a crucial role in the Battle of Britain.
