Fun activities to honour St George

Families can get a taste of medieval culture at Belsay Hall this weekend.

Musicians, nobles and townsfolk will feature in pageants, which include combat displays and a mummers play, to celebrate St George – the patron saint of England.

Those who come along on Saturday or Sunday (the activities run from 11am to 5pm) can also see the mysterious knight in his shining armour as he faces his famous foe, the dragon, in a play to entertain people of all ages.
