Feast of St George in Trafalgar SquareThough St George's Day is always on 23rd April, in 2014 it falls on a Wednesday so the London celebrations in Trafalgar Square will take place on the Monday before the saint's day, Easter Bank Holiday Monday 21st April. Flag waving is encouraged at this free event held in recognition of England's dragon-slaying patron saint with live bands playing on the main stage and food stalls surrounding the square. This year's event focuses on British food and there will be a 250 seat banqueting area in the square, free tastings, hog roasts, live cookery demonstrations and food workshops. A bandstand, traditional games and a kids' tent add to the very English sense of fun. Sadly, despite tireless campaigning to make St George's day a national bank holiday, celebrations on the actual day itself will have to fit in with working hours.

 

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
