BattleMaybe it’s just me but St. George’s Day never seems to be much of a celebration in England and in most years it tends to just pass me by. It’s a shame really because it’s a good opportunity to celebrate the traditions of our country and there are some great events organised for this weekend.

For those based around London, Boris Johnson has put on a programme of free events. Top of the bill this Saturday is ‘Concert On The Square’ in Trafalgar Square, promoted as “a unique opportunity to hear some of the finest folk inspired music coming out of England today”.

And across the country you’ll find a number of historical and traditional themed events, some of which include re-enactments of the legend of St. George. You can also expect to find knights sword fighting, archery, jousting, storytelling, parades and plenty of traditional music. The enjoyEngland website gives an overview of of the top events planned for this weekend in Ironbridge Gorge, Birmingham, Wrest Park, Corbridge, Richmond Castle, Hastings and Salisbury.

As for me, I’ll be back home in Kent this weekend to watch the Betteshanger band entertain at Dover Castle. So make sure you get out this weekend and celebrate St. George’s Day!
