St George's Festival


St George's Festival

Following government advice in relation to social distancing measures along with the need to focus resources on the delivery of the Council’s most critical services, the St George’s Day events have been cancelled. Thank you for your understanding

Enjoy the annual family festival with music, dance, crafts and entertainment. The event promises a day full of fun activities and workshops across the venues in the Cultural Quarter.

Meet Flame, the mighty dragon and say hello to sparkly baby dragon Sapphire. Get a selfie with our roaming dragons and take some 'roarsome' snaps.

Join in on the adventurous dragon hunt trail, play medieval games, and dance around the maypole. Enjoy storytelling and puppet shows, arts, crafts, balloon animals and circus skills.

Take part in our St. George themed workshops, tour artists’ studios, visit the exhibitions and relax with tasty food & refreshments.
