On Saturday 27th April 2019 an eighteen-foot-long dragon will be descending upon Gloucester. Dreygo the Dragon will be coming to the city for Dragon Day which is part of the city’s celebrations for St. George’s day which falls on Tuesday 23rd April. Those brave enough to face the fearsome dragon will be able to see him in King’s Square at 1.15pm and 3.15pm
There will also be three exciting craft workshops for families to enjoy, children can create their very own paper dragon puppets from a variety of different designs, there is also the opportunity to become a dragon with the mask, wing and tail making which will be produced from upcycled cardboard and reclaimed materials, or brave warriors can gear up to stop the dragons with the upcycled shield session.
The first craft workshop takes place between 10am and 12pm and the second session takes place between 1pm and 3pm in King’s Walk Shopping Centre.
Alex Kell, Board Member for Gloucester BID said “Dragon Day looks set to be another exciting addition to the collection of events that Gloucester BID has provided since it started. Events like this are an important part of what the BID is offering and help increase footfall and spend and showcases Gloucester as a place for families to come and experience a fun day out. It’s sure to be a great day that you won’t want to miss.”
Nina Mistry from Marketing Gloucester said “It’s great to have an event that celebrates St. George’s Day and allows families to create something that they can take home. The city will be filled with St. George and English White Dragon flags from 19th April to further add to the atmosphere in the city leading up to and over the weekend.”
Dragon Day is funded by Gloucester BID and organised by Marketing Gloucester.
