Market Harborough Hubbard Singing

Where: Market Harborough, Leicestershire at St Mary in Arden Church in Great Bowden Road.
When: Easter Saturday
Time: 5pm

 

Each Easter Saturday, the local St Dionysius Church choir gather at the ruins of the ancient church of St Mary in Arden at Market Harborough, to remember former churchwarden William Hubbard and to carry out his last wishes by singing “Jesus Christ is Risen Today” at his graveside . He died in 1786 and the special service has been happening annually ever since.

Helpful Hints

In 2018 it will be on Saturday 31st March.

It’s now at 5pm (formerly it was held at 6 but in recent years this has been brought forward, as when Easter is early it can precede the clock change to Summer Time and dusk is earlier then). The service lasts about 15 minutes and all are welcome to attend.
