Don't miss tomorrow's medieval fun

NANTWICH will host a Medieval Fair tomorrow, Sunday, in celebration of St George's Day.

In the second annual event organised by Nantwich Town Council, there will be street entertainment in the Town Square from 12 noon.

This will include Morris dancers, balloon wizards, jesters, a Punch & Judy show, basket weaving, a hog roast, trade stalls and fair ground rides.

There will also be performances from Xpressions Dance Academy, a medieval folk band and pupils from Brine Leas High and Malbank Schools.

Children can also get involved by taking part in a Dragon Trail.

The child who spots the highest number of dragons distributed throughout the town will win £20.

The image of the dragons was designed by Brine Leas High School pupil Anna Eite, 13, after organiser Cllr Keith Cafferty challenged pupils to come up with a suitable design.

Children aged under 11 years can participate by filling out an entry form, available at Nantwich Museum in Pillory Street.

The forms must be completed and handed in to the organisers by 4.30pm on the day of the event.

Cllr Cafferty said: "The Irish, Scots and Welsh all make a big thing of their patron saints and we felt the English should have their turn as well.

"But we are keen for everyone to join in the fun, the event is intended to celebrate the diverse community that is England today."

The Fair will begin at 12 noon and finish at 4.30pm, admission is free.
