Feast of St. George 2018

Feast of St. George 2018

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 21st Apr 2018

Fairs, fetes, fun-days and festivals are an integral part of English culture, and Feast of St George perfectly fits the bill. On Saturday 21 April, there's no better excuse to wave a flag, enjoy tea, cake and great entertainment, all in the surrounds of iconic Trafalgar Square.

The event promises a strong and varied live music programme with traditional and contemporary acts, including a 25-piece brass band, pop and folk groups, Victorian music hall, and showcase for young musicians.

A 6-piece band, ‘Pop London’, will deliver a set of tracks by classic and contemporary UK female artists. An all-singing all-dancing Victorian music hall show, delving deep into London’s heritage, will feature tributes to popular female artistes of yester-year.

Host for the stage is BBC Radio presenter Abbie McCarthy, a champion of new music, who has compered at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Glastonbury, The Great Escape, and the Mayor’s GIGS/Busk in London final.

Elsewhere on the Square you'll find arts workshops for children, old fashioned rides and a friendly dragon centrepiece. There’ll be red and white bunting and flags, stilt walkers, roaming entertainers, and pearly kings and queens. Look out too for the Ballad of St George and the Dragon, a special show presented by the Lions Part theatre company and performances by New Esperance women’s morris dance group.

Plus lots of quality food stalls selling all kinds of tasty treats, with a central banqueting area where you can sit and enjoy the occasion.

Cost: Free of Charge
