Wymondham's tribute to St George
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 April 18, is one of the highlights of the town's popular St George's Day extravaganza organised by Wymondham Lions Club.
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.
The club will provide the brooms for this event which is for teams of two people. For brush race rules, entry forms and stall inquiries email email@example.com
The procession starts at 1.50pm. Anyone who wishes to dress in medieval style, or red and white, is welcome to join in and should meet at the abbey at 1.30pm.
