Suppliers for The Feast of St George at Trafalgar Square, London

For the second year running Virginias Vintage Hire were invited to bring rustic chairs and tables to seat 250 at the Feast of St George in Trafalgar Square. On bank holiday Monday 21 April visitors turned out in their thousands with families and friends to enjoy the celebrations organised by the Mayor of London.

The Feast of St George is inspired by St George’s Day’s 13th century origins as a national day of feasting. There was an English farmers’ market with stalls selling mouth-watering treats like hog roast, homemade pies, cakes, all enjoyed in the splendid banqueting area between Trafalgar Square’s iconic fountains.

There were plenty of activities for the kids with a marquee full of family activities and an outdoor games area where visitors enjoyed a range of traditional garden games, also supplied by Virginias Vintage Hire.

It was an early start for us – leaving Devon at 4am and arriving back home at 1am after a packed day but we hope to return in 2015 to join in the fun again at this great event held in recognition of England’s dragon-slaying patron saint.
