Friends of York Walls and others are invited to join us in a parade on St. George’s Day,  Monday 23rd April 2012 at 6pm.

George and the Dragon will set off from Tower Gardens at 6pm and walk towards the eye of York, via Cliffords Tower.

The Dragon will be wounded (we need him for next year!) and a Scotsman will be captured. The parade will then proceed to Fishergate Postern tower where the wounded Dragon will be caged.

We still require 2 agile people to complete the Dragons legs! Any help, please email

Please not that In the event of heavy rain the event may have to be cancelled.

Chris Dowell Sec. (FYW)

Her Majesty The Queen was given the time-honoured Monarch’s welcome to the City of York at Micklegate Bar, in a medieval atmosphere conjured up by traditional musicians and musketeers.

She met the Lord Mayor David Horton and the town clerk, Kersten England, who read out a proclamation of welcome.
