Expect to see St George and his Dragon along with Morris Dancers, knights, musicians and a mini farm as Birmingham celebrates St George’s Day on Saturday 19 April from 11am – 5pm in Victoria and Chamberlain Squares.
In Victoria Square there will be live music from ‘Like a Rolling Stone’, one of the UK’s premier tributes to one of the world’s biggest bands, along with Birmingham pianist and singer Jake Henry and Britain’s Got Talent singer Rosie O’Sulllivan.
There will also be Morris dancing displays by the Glorishears Morris Dancers, free face painting and craft making workshops, balloon modelling, a mini farm experience and a display of MG cars. An English food and drink area with a bar serving traditional English ales and ciders will ensure visitors are kept refreshed throughout the day.
Meanwhile Chamberlain Square will be taken over by a Norman Living History Encampment who will demonstrate crafts such as coin striking and give some combat displays with English knights.
Saint Georges day is on the 23rd of April this year.
