Town Celebration

Civic and press photography

I was asked to photograph and record the ‘Beccles Charter Weekend’, for both Archant Press and the town’s website. Beccles commemorated one of the most significant events in its history, by hosting a weekend of celebratory events. The Beccles ‘Charter weekend’ marks the granting of the town’s historic charter by Queen Elizabeth 1 in 1584. The event features activities and displays at various points across the town: Hipperson’s Boatyard, the Town Hall filled with local authors, photographic and textile exhibitions and St Peter’s House garden. Local suppliers sold crépes, afternoon tea and much more, whilst musicians performed throughout the beautiful day.
