TODAY marks St George's Day and here's what's going on in Salisbury.

England's legendary patron Saint George will be celebrated in Salisbury Market Place on Sunday, April 28, from 10am until 4pm.

The celebrations, organised by Salisbury City Council, have been designed with family entertainment in mind and most activities are free to participate in.

The day will take place outside and begins at 9.55am with a short procession of Salisbury city councillors led by Mace Bearers and featuring the Salisbury Giant.

Visitors can then enjoy workshops, medieval re-enactments, street food, live music, Morris dancing, face painting, a free Blue Badge Tour and more throughout the day.

At 10.15am, 11.30am and 2pm Mr Brown's Pig Puppet Show will tell a magical story that promises to have you captivated from start to finish. This should be great fun for young and old alike.
