Mayor Anthony Moore takes firm action on the hustings in front of the Town Hall to silence Michael Hunt, TV personality and one of the candidates in the Eatanswill election re-enactment of May 2 1976. This was based on the fictional election described in Pickwick Papers – generally agreed to have been modelled on real events in Sudbury in 1834 when the town was notorious for its electoral corruption.
