Get Ready to Celebrate St George’s Day in Style!

1 month ago

St George’s Day is on 23rd April 2024

St George’s Day is almost upon us, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate all things English! Whether you’re planning a grand feast or a casual gathering, there are fun ways to mark the occasion. Here’s how you can get into the St George’s Day spirit:

Deck the Halls (or House!)

The most iconic symbol of St George’s Day is the flag itself – a bold red cross on a white background. You can show your pride by flying the flag from your window, or drape it around your doorway. Don’t forget to wear a red rose – another traditional way to celebrate St George’s Day.

Feast like a King (or Queen!)

St George’s Day is a great excuse to get together with friends and family for a delicious meal. Tuck into classic English fare like roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, fish and chips, or a ploughman’s lunch. No St George’s Day spread is complete without a pint!

Hosting a St George’s Day Soiree?

If you’re planning on hosting a gathering, head down to Fishergate Shopping Centre! Here you’ll find everything you need to make your St George’s Day celebration a hit. TK Maxx and TJ Hughes have a fantastic selection of new cutlery, plates, cups, and table decorations at amazing prices.

Fun for all the Family

Looking for some family-friendly activities? Why not delve into the legend of St George and the dragon? Read stories together, get creative by making dragon masks or designing your own knight’s shield, or even put on a mini play re-enacting the famous battle!

Celebrating English Culture

St George’s Day is a chance to celebrate the rich tapestry of English culture. Watch a classic British film, put on a playlist of iconic English bands, or delve into the works of William Shakespeare (remember, tradition claims he was born and died on St George’s Day!).

So, get ready to raise a glass, don your red and white, and celebrate St George’s Day in style! With a little planning and a trip to Fishergate Shopping Centre, you can create a memorable and fun-filled day for the whole family.
