Events - St George's Day

© Cecil Sharp House Choir

Saturday 25 April

Join in with a day of music, dance, arts and crafts to celebrate St George's Day!

Discover the delights of English folk music and dance traditions with Trad Academy, who will be here to perform and invite you to join in! Take part in a ceilidh dance and tap your feet to the hoofing of the flat footers!

We'll be attempting to raise the roof of the Museum in a ‘best of British’ musical feast with performances by the Instrumental folk group, Cecil Sharp House Choir, Trad Academy’s Sea Shanty Choir and Becontree Brass Band.

Art and craft activities will reinterpret St George's flag, celebrating Britishness in all its rich diversity.

Come and dress up and pose for a portrait shot in the Explorers Photo Studio, celebrating the rich culture of our post-colonial England. The Photo Studio will also be open 14.00-16.30 on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 April.
