The Saint Georges Day event in Birmingham went very well yesterday considering we had the odd torrential shower.
The outdoor event started in Victoria square and Chamberlain Square at 11 am. The main stage in V/Square was busy from 11am-5pm. There was a folk group called Moonrakers playing. A Queen tribute band called Kings of Queen playing, we didn't see them but were told that they were very good. Children from two schools were singing these were runners up from The St Georges Day bursary competition, The winners were singing in Symphony Hall at the evening concert.
There were some people in costume wandering around we had St George of course,Henry the Eighth, A fantastic Dragon, a Jester and several others.
In Chamberlain Square there were Knights in Armour fighting, very realistically too. There was also Morrismen and Women and a Medival type folk group.
Quite a lot of people had taken the time to dress up for the occasion. The weather started off quite well, when it was sunny it was fairly warm. but as it got a bit cloudy it went rather chilly.
Our evening concert in Symphony Hall went well as usual ending up with a smaller but very effective version of the last night of the proms. Symphony Hall lends itself to this very well as the Acoustics are fantastic.
On stage we had Sovereign Brass band, who are one of the finest in the country and a 200 odd Male Voice Choir (The St Georges Choir) Made up of around 8 seperate Choirs also another Choir was on stage a mixed choir call Chandos who were also very good.
Malcom Stent did two comedy slots and there were Children from Hillstone primary School who won the Bursary Competition and had the unforgetable experience of appearing at Symphony Hall. many other things went on during the day and evening this is just a taste. There could have been so much more. We keep hearing that more should be done for England and St Georges Day but the same people just ignore it and let it pass by. Even so several thousand people attended during the day and around 1500 were at the Symphony Hall show.
