A St George’s Day Pageant took place at Warkworth Castle at the weekend.

The English Heritage attraction hosted the event on Saturday and Sunday to allow attendees to celebrate England’s patron saint’s day, but in the medieval way.

Those who turned out to enjoy the various activities at the family fun days were able to join the medieval townsfolk, musicians and nobles as they celebrated with combat displays and musical performances.

There was also the chance to meet the mysterious knight in his shining armour, while keeping an eye out for his famous foe, the dragon.
