Meet Flame the Dragon at St George’s Day Celebrations
Celebrate St George’s Day with the family at Hever Castle & Gardens.
Hear tales of George’s adventures and travels and meet his dragon, Flame (and try and avoid his smoke and ear splitting roar).
Children can find out more about the stories behind St George and hunt for the dragon’s egg in a trail around the Castle* (*Castle entrance fee applies)
The patron saint of England was a fourth-century Christian martyr of which very little is known. He is thought to have been born in what is now Turkey and followed his father’s footsteps to become a soldier. When Emperor Diocletian ordered the persecution of Christians George refused to take part. In 303 (thought to be 23 April) he was tortured and executed. The legend of him killing a dragon and rescuing an innocent maiden is medieval.
