St George’s 2017 is coming to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens on 22nd and 23rd April.
Yes, a two day event with a massive bonfire on the Saturday night. The medieval full contact fighters will return for the third London Tournament, bringing carnage back to Steel Henge to crown a new champion. For those of you who don’t know, that means men in armour clubbing each other with axes. There will be Morris dancers, Punch & Judy, an ale and mead tent, falconry, archery for all the family and a hog roast, traditional crafts and an evening performance of Shakespeare around the bonfire.
This is the fifth year of the St George’s festival on the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. It has grown to take up two days, so that more traders, crafts people, performers and fighters can be involved. Come and join us, buy a wooden sword and relive a bygone era of chivalry.
