The annual St. George's Day celebrations are held in Pinner Village High Street on a Sunday in April close to St George's Day. The picturesque High Street is closed to traffic for the day and transformed into a family friendly venue for celebrating the patron saint of England, St George.

This year our St George's Celebration will be on Sunday 22nd April 2018

St George

There will be entertainment for everyone with stalls and activities.

The highlight of the celebrations is always Ye Olde Wheelbarrow Race, a unique Pinner event in which teams of two take it in turns to push their partner in a wheelbarrow, drink beer and race round the streets of Pinner.
