For the fourth consecutive year the annual festival, which is run in conjunction with Dudley Council, is returning to Dudley Zoo.

The attraction is inviting residents to join them for a celebration on Sunday, April 28, between 3pm and 7pm.

The event will take place inside the courtyard of Dudley Castle and will include a medieval re-enactment, children's entertainers, face painting, crafts and a walkabout with Smoked the Dragon.

There will also be animal encounters and extra talks and feeds, as well as history and ghost tours throughout the afternoon.

Tickets for the event are available for £3.

Derek Grove, zoo director, said: "We are looking forward to welcoming borough residents to Dudley Zoological Gardens again this year to help us celebrate the legend of St George as past years have been a roaring success.”

The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Alan Taylor, added: "The tickets for the St George’s Day celebrations are again selling fast and this popular event has a limited number of £3 tickets available, so I would advise people to hurry and book."
