The Piece Hall Sing – Aka Sunday School Jubilee Sing, Sunday School Sing – was a local singing festival introduced on 14th September 1831 – with an attendance of 14,431 – in celebration of the jubilee of local Sunday school movement with choirs and bands.
14 Sings were held at 5-yearly intervals between 1831 and 1890. These were held during Whit week in May at the Piece Hall.
For this last Sing, the balconies of the Piece Hall were crowded with spectators, others stood on Beacon Hill and neighbouring slopes, and points of vantage everywhere were occupied
