Location: Borough Market
April 22, 2018 - April 22, 2018
Join Borough Market on Sunday 22nd April for a family-friendly day filled with food, music, storytelling and theatre, celebrating the influence Saint George has had around the world.
His cross is on our flag and we have claimed the day of his death as our national day, but it would be a stretch to claim Saint George as our own. In fact, this Turkish-born Roman soldier is patron saint not only of countries ranging from England and Lithuania to Ethiopia and Catalonia but of butchers, shepherds and farmers too!
Sample unique St George’s day products regular traders and marvel at the things on offer from special guests too, including a performance of George and the Dragon from local theatre group the Lion’s Part, a dance around the maypole as you may never have seen it before from Folk Dance Remixed and the construction of a human tower from the Castellers of London.
Borough regular Luke Mackay will be in the Demo Kitchen, along with Dom from trader Northfield Farm, for free cooking demonstrations highlighting meat and butchery.
Whether he’s your patron saint or not, the multicultural sounds, smells and tastes of St George’s Day are not to be missed!
