St George fights the dragon

Witness the ultimate showdown as gallant St George takes on his arch nemesis in England’s most legendary battle. Enjoy medieval music, side-splitting story telling and the big battle - George verses dragon! Mini knights can pick a sword and advance in the childrens' battle drill as St George himself teaches you the art of dragon slaying. Will you be good enough for him to knight you?

Join us for a whole day of medieval activity and performances, learn how St George and the Knights and Ladies would have dressed themselves and watch as our noble knights take on the ultimate contest in the Knights Tournament. Swords of Mercia will help prepare you for battle in our weapons training, showing you the skills and weapons needed for the road to Knighthood.

Did you know that St George wasn't English? Take a rest from the action and listen to a knight from the battle of Crecy tell The Story of St George. Look out for the have-a-go junior jousting in the Kids Arena to keep aspiring Knights entertained and sustain yourself for battle at the BBQ.
