St George's Day Vigil at Cross Bones Graveyard

A vigil to honour the outcast dead of Cross Bones Graveyard has been held on the 23rd of every month since 2004.

Every April 23rd, St George is honoured at Cross Bones as 'Our Lady's Knight' and as the protector of spiritual works. There'll be poetry, songs and simple participatory rituals led by John Constable ('The Southwark Mysteries') and other local artists.

Bring a flowers or a memento to renew the living shrine at the gates, and a poem, song or something else to share. A celebration of Englishness at its most diverse and inclusive.
