The Mayor of London's throwing a party in honour of England's own doughty knight, St George. This Trafalgar Square takeover takes place two days after his official feast day, but will involve more than enough traditional fun to make up for it. St George's Day started out in the thirteenth century as a national day of feasting, so look out for the live demos from leading London chefs as well as an English farmer's market and banqueting area. Family games, brass bands, a medieval jousting tiltyard and plenty more silliness will keep you entertained once you've feasted fit to burst.
