St George's Celebrations

Sunday, 26 April 2015

The Market Square in Aylesbury was bustling with activity today to celebrate St George, the Patron Saint of England.

St George's Day was actually on Thursday but this free family event took place today. The entertainment and activities were themed around the 3C's that are associated with St George - Courage, Chivalry and Charity.

The event was running from 11am - 4pm. There had been various entertainment throughout the day but when we arrived about 3ish we were just in time to see St George (on stilts) encounter the dragon (created by pupils of Broughton Infant School) as per the myth of Saint George and the Dragon.

Next up were some battling knights demonstrating their sword skills. The swords hitting the shields were very loud so Little Miss A had to cover up her ears! 

There was just time for a quick go on the bouncy castle before watching the Annual Scout Parade. 

As soon as Little Miss A heard the Amersham Marching Band start-up she was out of her pushchair and clapping away!

Once the parade had passed by, we watched Kester the Jester for a short while. We could have stayed a bit longer as there were lots of other activities going on including a tight-rope and crafts but I had a couple of bits to get in town before the shops closed. T

Another really great free event organised by Aylesbury Town Council
