St George's Day
Dartford Borough Council, Cohesion Plus and the Kent Equality Cohesion Council work together to organise a fantastic annual St George's Day celebration and aim to make it one of the biggest celebrations taking place anywhere in England on the big day itself.
Entertainment in the High Street plus a fantastic schools parade brings a real celebratory atmosphere to the Town Centre.
The event puts good old St George, the Patron Saint of England at the centre of the town's celebration and invites everyone, English or not, to join in a great celebration of this wonderful country and all the people who call it home.
This year's celebrations will take place on Tuesday 23rd April:
