Crispus/Gaius/Peroni,

What is the plan for the event at Wrest Park in April. Is it only a Roman event, and will there be other organisations there?

Is there any detail of the programme - opening times etc.

Thanks

Hi,

Its a multi period St Georges Day event- details here http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/serv ... /nav.11207
I'm guessing that it would start about 10/ 10.30.

The organiser's ad says :-
"Cavalry Displays

Enjoy a thrilling programme of period entertainment. Watch and admire magnificent mounted cavalry displays. Marvel at the skill required to perform a mounted display and admire the clothing, weapons and saddlery of the 5th-century AD.

Rowdy Roman Encampments

Visit the camp of the raucous Romans and see for yourself what life would have been like during these fascinating times. Play traditional games and wonder at some crazy Roman inventions!

Redcoat infantry soldiers

Compare and contrast uniforms and equipment from the 18th and 19th -centuries with exciting drills taking place throughout the day.

Medieval Falconry

Marvel at magnificent birds of prey flying free in the skies above Wrest Park and learn the techniques of the fascinating art of falconry with our professional falconry team.

Children’s Activities

Children will love the fabulous theatre productions while ‘What a Palaver’ will astound all who gather with their feats of fire breathing and if you listen carefully you’ll hear medieval rhythms as Wynndebagge invites you to put your best foot forward.

Puppet shows, bouncy castles and Peterkin the Fool will guarantee smiles all day, while mums and dads can visit our Historic Market and pick up some souvenirs and tasty treats from the food stalls and craft market.

St George V the dragon

The day will culminate in the Big Match between St George and the dastardly dragon. Watch as St George, resplendent in his shining armour and astride his noble steed battles it out with the dastardly green dragon. "

Personally, I'm thinking of supporting the dragon......
