Bishop Vesey established the Sutton Coldfield Royal Charter | Sutton Coldfield

What's happening?

In 1528, King Henry VIII gave Bishop Vesey the Earl of Warwick's forfeited property and rights at Sutton. Vesey eventually retired to Sutton (where he died in 1555). He oversaw the creation of the famous Royal Charter, whereby the town was to be run by Corporation consisting of a Warden and Society. The Corporation's rights and responsibilities included the use and maintenance of the common lands, including the park. The nature of their stewardship varied over the years that followed.


At last, someone has recognised the up and coming 500th anniversary of that great year!!!! 31st July? What happened to the 16th December? Is this the official event? If so, I WILL be going!
