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 fourth in the series.
With the Theatre Royal celebrating its bi-centenary in October 2019, join Pat Murrell to hear of the town’s earlier theatrical scene. 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.

This event takes place on Thursday 24 October at 8pm, at the United Reformed Church, Whiting Street, Bury St Edmunds.
