St Peter’s Closure Event – Last Chance to see, Heritage Photos, Peal of Bells, Renovation Party

Sunday, 12th September, 2021 |11:00 am - 9:00 pm


Last Chance to See….. from 11 to 4

St Peter’s is closing on Monday 13 September for renovation works and will not re-open until sometime in 2023.  Please do come down and have a last look at the building before the works starts.  Take photos so you can remind yourself in years to come what it looked like before “The Great Works”.

Display of Heritage Photos: from 11 to 4 

Over the Friends of St Peter’s have amassed a large archive of all sorts of items relating to St Peter’s.  We will be displaying photos of these so please do come and have a look at them, not many of them have been on display before.

A Very Special Music at Lunchtime: from 12 to 2

We have asked all the musicians that have played in our free lunchtime concerts to come and play some more on our very last day.  Please do pop in for this free concert, feel free to bring your own refreshments as well.

A Peal of Bells: from 2:30 to 3

The Suffolk Guild of Bell Ringers will be coming to St Peter’s to ring a very special peal of bells to mark the final day before closure for the renovation works.  You can not only hear them but you will be able to see them on our ground floor television thanks to a camera feed from the bell ringing chamber.

Renovation Party: from 5 until 9 

By this time most of the Friends will be dead on their feet, but…. we have a renovation party for members, hirers, volunteers, performers and supporters.  You are all welcome to come and celebrate the success of the people of Sudbury in saving St Peter’s back in the 1970s and then being so good at running it that the Churches Conservation Trust obtained multi-million pound funding from the Lottery Fund (not forgetting the substantial grants from Babergh District Council and the Friends themselves) for the essential repairs needed on the building and to upgrade the interior.

And finally – sit back and relax – next event is in 2023.
