ST GEORGE’S FESTIVAL
Wrest Park, Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 6pm.
Immerse yourself in the story of England at the biggest St George’s Day celebration in the country. Gasp at the medieval joust, see the Roman soldiers march, watch the falconry and chortle at the cheeky jester. Have a tea party, learn ciphers and codes, watch the Civil War soldiers and the Clash of Knights. And as the highlight see gallant St George and his mighty steed take on the dragon in England’s ultimate showdown.
There’s plenty for kids to do, including circus skills, knight school and arts and crafts.
