A plaque to commemorate John Ball will be unveiled on Saturday 15th July 2017 at 4pm by the Bishop of Colchester and Baroness Chakrabarti CBE. The unveiling will take place on John Ball Day, which coincides with the date of John Ball’s execution in 1381.
Prior to the unveiling, a recording of the new John Ball Motet by Lizzie Gutteridge will be played. After the unveiling, a choir will perform “Who will be the Lady”. This will be followed by Dorian Kelly, who will take the role of John Ball – whilst making a rallying speech to the people of Colchester.
