Attend the revived St George's Day Pageant in the City of London

Today is St George's Day, and to celebrate the City of London is reviving a tradition not seen in our city since the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, with St George himself parading through the streets of the Square Mile for the first time since 1585.

St George will be mounted on horseback, escorted by the Band of The Parachute Regiment, the Regimental Colour party, Pegasus the Regimental Mascot and soldiers and armoured combat vehicles.

The event has been recreated to support The Parachute Regiment and raise funds for The Parachute Regiment Charity and the Gauntlet Trust. Marchers group together at the Honourable Artillery Company just after 11am, then form up in Coleman St shortly afterwards, passing through Paternoster Square and past St Paul's before returning to Coleman Street for finish at around 12.30pm.
