Chester will celebrate St George’s Day on Saturday, April 23, with a medieval street performance.
A fire-breathing dragon will take centre stage at Chester Town Hall Square, where primary school children will help St George defend himself against the evil monster.
The legend is retold by Chester artist Russell Kirk with its own Chester twist.
A parade of minstrels, knights and jesters will help bring the story to life as it moves around the city in a pageant of colour and sound.
Cabinet member for culture, leisure and wellbeing Louise Gittins said: “Please join us to celebrate St George’s Day, England’s Patron Saint. This unique performance is part of our programme of inclusive leisure and culture helping to make West Cheshire such a great place to live and visit.
“Each school has been making costumes and props for their parts in the event. We will certainly be encouraging audience participation with booing and cheering as the story unfolds."
The performance starts at Chester Town Hall at 11am and progresses around the city centre ending in a grand finale confrontation back at the Town Hall.
