St George's Celebration and Scout Parade @ Market Square | England | United Kingdom

A free family fun day in celebration of England’s patron Saint George.

Come along for a great day-out, steeped in traditional English history and culture, dowsed in good-old family fun and entertainment.  Meet St George riding his magnificent steed, as well as a dragon who is more sweet than scary.  There will be displays and interactive sessions featuring a variety of traditional crafts with the Queens Park Arts Centre including willow weaving, crochet, lace making and blacksmithing – with opportunities to have a go.  Children, of all ages, can try their hands at archery and sword fighting.  Test your skills in our cricket simulator or learn how to play some traditional board games, alongside arts, crafts and a range of games and activities.  Be entertained by the St George and Dragon puppet show and a special condensed version of Twelfth Night, or take part in a May Pole Dance.  There really will be lots of fun and entertainment for you, and all your family.

The annual scout parade leaves Market Square at 2:45pm, led by The Amersham Marching Band, St George on horseback with over 200 Scouts, marching to St Mary’s Church, for the annual affirmation service.  Returning at approx. 4:15pm for the Scouts to be formally dismissed by the District Commissioner.
