St George’s Day falls on the 23rd April and of course celebrates Saint George, who wonderfully wasn’t even English. He has become England’s symbol and martyr namely for for slaying Dragons and being rather chivalrous towards a lovely princess. This act obviously certifies him for Sainthood and so we celebrate him once a year by watching displays of jousting and reenactments dragon slaying. It’s a perfect excuse for dressing up as a knight or in medieval dress and feel very English. One fabulous venue that we enjoy visiting, Hever Castle will be hosting their Knights once again this year which is a lovely place to stroll around and enjoy. (Side note: Stop by and have a look at The Festival Theatre where The Rat Pack will be returning to open the theatre season)
If like us, chainmail is not a look that you normally sport, then it’s best left to the professionals and we know the right people to call to make this possible. As well as the wonderful jousting displays you will find all over the UK this weekend, you are also bound to come across a few well known faces with look-a-likes of The Queen and lovebirds Will’s and Kate right at the top of the list of our ‘most British’ list.
If that doesn’t float your Royal Britannia then we can help put together your own ‘very British’ event,
A few suggestions include,
Pearly Kings and Queens
An English Sports Day, perfect for corporate events
Red, White and Blue room theming
Themed Hostesses or Royal look-a-likes
Beside The Seaside themed event
Enjoy St Georges Day, and watch out for Dragons… unless you’re a Princess of course, then don’t panic, you will be rescued in the nick of time!
