High Street, March, Cambridgeshire, PE15 9JJ
A group of hares is called a husk, which like most collective nouns has no logical basis. This is an exhibition celebrating the hare and the environment of the Fens where the flat open fields make them a common sight. Photographer Roger Coleman, writer Sue Welfare and artist John Wiltshire have combined their talents to create sights and sounds to remind us of the life, folklore and habitat of hares. Witches were believed to turn themselves into hares and in that guise would steal milk from cows. The only way to kill a witch hare was to shoot it with a silver bullet. March has an historic connection with hares, it is the nickname of March Town Football club and during the Second World War a group of ladies formed the March Hares entertainment group.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
