Street drama, a smoke-breathing dragon and images of the English Civil War were some of the highlights of St George’s Weekend in Long Sutton.

The event brought hundreds of people onto the town’s streets and into Cinder Ash Park for an array of festivities, including a classic vehicles display, funfair, market stalls and demonstration by Holbeach Gymnastics Club.

St Mary’s Church hosted a performance of St George and the Dragon by Bourne Borders Dancing Tea, the Trayned Bandes of England staged a re-enactment of the English Civil War which pitted the Royalists against the Roundheads and A Touch of Drama theatre group presented their version of The Wizard of Oz.

Jack Tyrrell, chairman of organisers Events and Entertainment in Long Sutton, said: “In these difficult days where every penny counts, it’s nice to put this event on so that families can have a weekend out.

“I have the best job of putting it all together because we have a great community spirit here and I, for one, am very proud to live in Long Sutton.”
