Sharing Suffolk Stories: Sudbury Market


A market has been a fixture of Sudbury for over 1000 years, and is still an important part of life in the town today.

This project, in partnership with Sudbury Ephemera Archive, will research and bring together material on the history of the market, and record the stories of today’s traders and shoppers. The stories collected will then be shared in a creative way to take them to a wider audience.

Take part

You could join in as a researcher, or to help share the stories that are uncovered. You will get to meet new people, learn more about your local area, be part of preserving and sharing your history, and have fun!

Sharing Suffolk Stories

Sudbury Market is a Sharing Suffolk Stories project, part of a countywide programme of activities to run alongside the development of ‘The Hold’, which will engage more people than ever before in Suffolk’s archival heritage.
