By George, it's a dragon!

Manchester’s St George’s Parade is taking place this Sunday 25 April with a cavalcade of floats, bands and performers to commemorate our patron saint.

The whole weekend is expected to be a celebratory fusion of colour, noise and flamboyant fun for all in front of the Town Hall. There will be musical and theatrical entertainment, costume characters and performers, an English themed pub, arts and crafts and various food and drink stalls.

The weekend celebrations will also include a special St George's Day market in Piccadilly Gardens from Friday 23 until Sunday 25 April as well as the St George Festival in Albert Square from 11am until 6pm.

There will be musical and theatrical entertainment, costume characters and performers, an English themed pub, arts and crafts and various food and drink stalls. On Saturday there will be a display of Rolls Royce cars from vintage vehicles to the current day. And let's not forget the parade on Sunday...

Starting at Varley Street in Miles Platting at 11.30am it will snake its way into the city centre along Oldham Road and Oldham Street to Piccadilly Gardens where the Lord Mayor of Manchester will take a salute.

The three mile parade will then continue on its way along Newton Street, Great Ancoats Street, Butler Street and Bradford Road before returning to Varley Street for the finish. There will be a viewing area in Piccadilly Gardens for those with disabilities so that everyone can have a good view of the celebrations.
