The famous Tamworth annual St George’s Day celebrations organised by Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team is set to make a virtual return for 2021.
This year’s fun-filled interactive online event will be taking place across Friday 23rd April and Saturday 24thApril and includes a great line-up of online workshops for you to enjoy safely at home or in the classroom at a later date.
Saint George’s Day, also known as the Feast of Saint George, is celebrated annually on the 23rd April. The legend of St George, England’s patron saint, tells of a brave knight on horseback slaying a beastly dragon to save the princess from giving her life to the dragon, as the village had run out of treasures and livestock offerings.
It is a day that is widely celebrated with the raising of the St George’s Day flag which can be seen flying high at Tamworth Castle and is a celebration that usually draws a crowd of thousands of visitors to the Castle Grounds to watch re-enactments, jousting and to take part in medieval workshops.
This year, while the event can’t go ahead in the usual format due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions,
