Tales from the Bury St Edmunds Pageant - (4) Liz Cole

Liz Cole (nee Ascott) was born and bred in Sudbury in Suffolk. In 1959 her family became involved with the pageant of Magna Carta in Bury St Edmunds through the Eatanswill Society (the penultimate scene featured the infamous Eatanswill election scene from Dickens's Pickwick Papers, and was supposedly based on the town of Sudbury).
