This is like a breath of fresh air after more than a decade of New Labour rule when I often felt it was fine to be proudly Scottish, Welsh or Irish but you practically had to apologise for being English.
Anyway rant out of the way, we were treated to street musicians and performers from the Big Fish Arts group re-enacting the story of George and the Dragon in their own inimitable style...
First some music to get everyone in the mood for some serious dragon slaying.
Now enter the dragon.
Son, please don't feed the dragon!
Bring on brave St George to dispatch the evil dragon.
The dragon defeated. Now it's the turn of the saracen....
The performance lasted about half an hour and was much appreciated by the large crowd gathered in the sunshine.
Apart from the show in the street, the Council had arranged free arts and crafts for the children at the Tourist Information Centre adjacent to the aptly named St George's church pictured at the top of this post.
Here is my son's masterpiece.
