ST GEORGE'S Day fun was had in Rugby on Monday (April 23).

The town centre became a patriotic sea of red and white for the celebration of England's patron saint.

The day, organised by Rugby First, included colourful dragons created by schoolchildren, music and dancing, an ancient Mummers Play, face painting for little princes and princesses, birds of prey, craft demonstrations, and even some modern day knights of the road as local motorcyclists showed off their machines.
