St. George's Day
April 23Celebrations ~ Dragonslayer
The patron saint of England, St. George was a Roman soldier who protested the torture of Christians and died for his impertinence.
During the early Crusades, the Normans reportedly saw St. George in a vision and were victorious in battle. Richard the Lionheart subsequently adopted the emblem of St. George -- a red cross on a white background -- on his soldiers' tunics and the flag of England, and part of the British flag.
Tamworth Castle is one of the best places in the UK to celebrate the feast day of Britain's patron saint. Jousting, falconry, archery and living history are among the free events offered in 2013 on Saturday April 20, noon - 5pm.
The medieval joust pits the Black Knight against Sir Robert Marmion for the honour of Tamworth. Details.
