Horseman’s Sunday at St John’s Hyde Park

Our friends at St John’s have asked us to publicise this very popular event as follows:
49th Horseman’s Sunday
18th September 2016 (10am to 2pm)
St John’s Hyde Park

Running since 1967 in the Hyde Park Estate, the horses of our local stables will once again gather for their annual blessing outside St John’s, Hyde Park. This festive occasion gathers the horses that use Hyde Park, including horseguards, the police and carriages. Once assembled in front of the church, the vicar appears on horseback fully robed for a traditional blessing. Surrounding all the horsing around is a traditional village fete including refreshments, jazz music, cake stall and many children’s activities. A great day for the whole family it is not to be missed. A festival eucharist starts at 10am including Bach’s Jesu joy of man’s desiring, with outdoor fete, service and cavalcade following. It’s all packed up by 2 o’clock, so don’t be late.
