If you’re looking for something to do in Manchester this weekend, then why not head over to the St George’s Day Parade!

Saturday 23rd is the official day to celebrate St George’s Day each year and parades generally take place on the following Sunday.

St George was born in 280AD and legend has it that he once slayed a dragon. Known for being a soldier in the Roman Army, his emblem was a white background with a red cross, which is where England gets its flag from.

Manchester’s annual St George’s Day parade takes place on Sunday 24th April 2016 between 11.45am until 1.45pm.

The parade leaves Varley Street at 11.45am, heads all the way down Oldham Street to Piccadilly, back to Varley Street through the Northern Quarter, ending with a post parade party in Adactus Car Park, just off Varley Street.

The parade is expected to reach Piccadilly Gardens at 12.30pm, where there will also be a Street Festival with plenty of entertainment running from 11.30am until 4pm. Expect music, comedy, refreshments and plenty of fun!
