The aim of the events is to celebrate the patron Saint of England and bring together the diverse communities in the boroughs to celebrate this important day. The highlight of the celebrations will be the school parades, which will feature 22 local schools and some 1000 young people from across the boroughs who will have been working with the Festivals’ artistic partners Same Sky to create pieces of visual art which they will display in the parades.
