St George’s Festival 2015 – Presentation

After the brilliant success that was the St George’s Day Festival we have put together a powerpoint presentation of pictures collected from the day, which you can watch below!

We had a great day and are looking forwards to St George’s Festival 2016! We hope you are too!

Thanks for showing your support, we hope to see you at the Summer Festival on the 11th of July – get those picnic blankets ready!

OMG that was amazing

Thank you to the 3000 people who turned up to see Battle of the Nations UK Federation competing in the inaugural London  Tournament. John ‘Sharkey’ Quayle was crowned as the London Champion and the English won the Agincourt memorial melee.  For those of you who were not there here is a taste.  They will be back next year, bigger, badder, better!_DSC3116-Edit_DSC3092-Edit
