GALLERY: 15 of our best dressed windows herald St George’s Day celebrations
A SPECTACULAR series of events take place in March on Sunday as the town hosts its’ annual St George’s Day fair.
From 10am when March senior youth theatre perform songs from the Wiz followed by the choir of All Saints primary school the day has a feast of activity through to late afternoon.
Peterborough Highland Pipe Band ushers in the official opening by the Mayor, Councillor Bernard Keane, at 10.50am and there are re enactments, dancing, vintage bikes, molly dancers, Punch and Judy, craft fairs, organ recitals and even a duck race.
Dozens of organisations are involved with events spread across the town but especially in the market place and on library mound.
