Celebrate the feast of St George

This event has finished Took place on: Sunday, 22nd Apr 2018

A family-friendly day filled with food, music, storytelling and theatre, celebrating the influence Saint George has had around the world.

His cross is on our flag and we have claimed the day of his death as our national day, but it would be a stretch to claim Saint George as our own. In fact, this Turkish-born Roman soldier is patron saint not only of countries ranging from England and Lithuania to Ethiopia and Catalonia but of butchers, shepherds and farmers too!

Join us from 12-4pm on Sunday 22nd April to celebrate Saint George in all his incarnations.

Here you will get the opportunity to sample unique St George’s day products from our regular traders, as well as marvel at the things on offer from some of our special guests too. This includes a performance of George and the Dragon from local theatre group the Lion’s Part, a dance around the maypole as you may never have seen it before from Folk Dance Remixed and the construction of a human tower from the Castellers of London. Not only that, but we'll also be joined by the National Farmer's Union who'll be bringing their interactive Discovery Barn along, where children can explore a series of games including; The Minute Milk Challenge featuring much loved 'Annabelle' the dairy cow, and a interactive Farm Tour Tractor Experience.

Cost: Free of Charge
