British Queen celebrates

Celebrations to mark St George’s Day will return to Trafalgar Square on Saturday 23 April with a wide range of live music, entertainment and food.

The family event, from noon to 6pm, will be hosted by presenter Michelle Ackerley and entertainers Jones & Barnard, and include an afternoon programme of live music featuring string quartet Bowjangles, hoedown collective Cut A Shine, brass band Das Brass and folk headliner James Riley & the Rooftop Assembly.

Alongside the main stage, there will be walking entertainment from St George with his Dragon, Divine stilt walkers and the Pearly Kings and Queens. 

There will also be family activities including The Knights Training School, the Storytorium, a dragon Selfie station, face painting, upcycled arts and crafts, and a games area, as well as a range of food stalls.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions, it will be the first time that St George's Day celebrations have taken place on Trafalgar Square since 2019 (фото-John Pannell/wikimedia).
