St.George’s Day in Nottingham 2016

A big turnout, helped by the sunshine and it being Saurday.
Has built up without much externl support.
Protestant traditions and other factors have has meant th English don’t care about St.George is not cared about in the way the other UK nations care about their saint.
Certainly, focussing on knights from the crusades (the knights thought they saw St.George during their battles) kinda misses what England is all about. But hey, it’s a party.
