St. Georges Day is always celebrated on April 23rd & is the National day of England. St George is famous for slaying a dragon in 303, and has since become the patron Saint of England.
There are lots of fun things to do for St. George’s day for Nannies and children alike; here are a few of our favourites;
The Mayor of London’s annual Feast of St George takes place in Trafalgar Square with a Shakespearean theme. Celebrity chefs offer cooking demos, stalls selling food and drink, and family-friendly games — with live music. 23 April, 12pm-6pm
The V&A Museum of Childhood hosts a family-friendly day of English folk music and dance. Watch performances by the Trad Academy and the Becontree Brass Band, and take part in art and craft activities. 11.30am-4.30pm
Did you know that the Scout movement has been celebrating St George’s Day on 23 April since its first years.
