By George! A Good Knight Guaranteed

Surprisingly only one in five English people know that St George’s Day is on April 23. More than a quarter of those living in England don’t even know who their patron saint is, and even fewer know St George – a Turkish-born Roman soldier – is also the patron saint of Aragon, Catalonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Palestine and Portugal, not to mention soldiers, archers, cavalry and chivalry, farmers, field workers, riders and saddlers, and those suffering from leprosy, plague and syphilis!

When the Saints come marching in, Ireland’s St Patrick, Scotland’s St Andrew and St David of Wales know how to party, but nowadays St George’s Day across the country has become just another date on the calendar, with many celebrations more drag-on than dragon.

But as always at Les’s special parties, the emphasis is always on good old-fashioned fun and frolics, offering the complete service from the tale to the toasts with the emphasis firmly back on absolute entertainment.

By George! takes all the hassle away from the organizers, making a Good Knight guaranteed with laugh-a-minute Les Peters also able to provide a variety of other activities, many of which can be used to offset the cost of the event.
