ST George will lead a procession from Wymondham Abbey to confront a fearsome dragon awaiting him in the Market Place.
The lighthearted re-enactment, on Saturday, is one of the highlights of the town's popular St George's Day extravaganza organised by Wymondham Lions Club.
There will be medieval stalls, games, morris dancers, music, jesters and a fancy dress competition judged by town mayor Len Elston. Rides will be available on miniature 'medieval steam engines' and, in recognition of the town's brush making industry, the Lions will be holding the inaugural Wymondham traditional great brush race.
The winners will hold the treasured golden spigot for a year.
