A multicultural festival held every year in late April in historic Southwark

Southwark has many reasons to celebrate St George, both as patron saint of England and as patron of many of the diverse communities now belonging to the borough.

The St George in Southwark Festival aims to bring together groups who already celebrate St George’s Day and Shakespeare’s birthday (23 April) and to promote further events to develop community life in the Bankside and north Southwark area.
