Meet the Bishops

StEdsShieldThe Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, the Rt Rev Martin Seeley and the Bishop of Dunwich, the Rt Rev Mike Harrison, will be undertaking a walking pilgrimage through the West of the Diocese during Lent, and on Monday 26th March their route will bring them from Newmarket, via Red Lodge to All Saints' Worlington where they will lead a service of Evening Prayer at about 5pm. After that they will be brought to Freckenham to rest overnight before continuing their journey towards Bury St Edmunds via Mildenhall.  In the evening from 7.30pm onwards there will be a social event in the village hall so that the two Bishops can meet and chat with locals as well as members of churches in nearby villages.

Here I Belong

HereIBelong Once again with CAE support Pentabus Theatre Company returns to Freckenham with a performance of 'Here I Belong' - a play by Matt Hartley. It’s about communities, relationships and growing old. It is an uplifting night out, with some gentle audience participation if you want too!

It's Elsie's birthday, which is appropriate since it mirrors the 20th anniversary of the opening of the village hall in February (another milestone!). You are invited to celebrate with us, bring your friends, your family or just bring yourself. There will be cake! Elsie has lived here for 60 years. In that time she has seen elections, weddings, wars, people coming, people going. You'll travel through time with her from 1953 to the present day and help Elsie stay where she belongs.

Join us for a sensitive, charming and honest portrayal about life and the right to grow old in your own home. The show is staged in cabaret-seating style and the scenery changes with bunting, flowers, fairy lights and balloons as the audience is taken on a journey through 60 years of village life.


Tickets Adult £9 and under 18 £5.  Tickets in advance (it helps with the layout and how many tables & chairs are needed but can be collected on door) by calling to book 01638 720118 or 07542 198 933.
