Dozens of people are all set to take part in a huge photo shoot to help promote St Edmund’s Day.

It is taking place in the courtyard by the side of the Cathedral, in Bury St Edmunds, on Sunday, August 19.

The photo bomb comes after a similar event was held last year and is being organised once again by the We Love Bury St Edmunds! facebook group.

Organiser and owner of the group James Sheen said he was hoping a simlar number of people who attended last year’s shoot would show up for the session.

“We will have a few celebrities and it’s only three more months until St Edmund’s Day that and I’m hoping we get another good crowd and good weather.

“We will be by the statue in the churchyard and planning to take the photo of everyone at 2pm so come along and take part in the sessions to support St Edmund.”
