Horning is a picturesque village along the banks of the River Bure. The Name means ‘the folk who live on the high ground between the rivers’. The Parish extends along the north bank of the River Bure to the Thurne mouth and includes the ruins of the Abbey and St James hospital also the 13th century church of St Benedict.
Horning Parish Council is supporting the celebrations for 1000 years of
history since St Benet’s Abbey was founded on land endowed by King Canute.
The flagship event on Sunday 9th June are two performances of a fabulous
play ‘A Time to Gather Stones’ and the Parish Council have given
permission for the first scene to take place by the river on St Benet’s
Green, before ticket holders board the Mississippi Riverboat to St Benet’s
to watch the rest of the play. Tickets are £10 for performances at 11.00 and
12. 15 and are on sale at Horning Post Office.
There is a free easy access performance on the Recreation Ground next to
Horning Village Hall on Friday 14th June at 7.00 pm. Just turn up and enjoy
the stories of villains, wealthy lords, rebellious peasants – and a jester!
