There be dragons!

There be dragons!

St George’s Guildhall was taken over by dragons at its first ever Dragon Festival on Saturday 4 November.


Nearly 700 people dropped into the free event that took place on Saturday afternoon and was followed by a free screening, with free popcorn, of the feature film 'How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (PG)' at the Guildhall Theatre.

Tim FitzHigham, Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk Creative Director, said: "It was wonderful that nearly 700 people came to see the dragons at the Guildhall. Dragons have always been a big part of life at St George’s Guildhall. We have records of Dragon Collars being on site from the 1500s, which must have been a lot bigger and stronger than dog collars! We had so much going on during the day for families to enjoy, with a deadly dragons trail, face painting, archery, brass rubbing and even an opportunity to meet a real dragon and other live creatures. The whole day was ROARsome!”
