St George's Day
The annual celebration in Pinner High Street, featuring the famous Wheelbarrow Race
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 take place on
Sunday 22nd April 2018
There will be entertainment for everyone with stalls and activities.
At 1pm the Scouts, led by the Mayor of Harrow and St George on Gusar the horse, will parade up the High Street to the War Memorial and renew their Promise. There will be folk dancing, Punch & Judy, live music, children's rides, a petting farm, food stalls and much more!
The Wheelbarrow Race
Don’t feel up to pushing a wheelbarrow? Why not volunteer to be a Steward instead.
We are looking for able bodied persons who can assist us in keeping the public and participants safe during the race. You’ll also get a grandstand view and be part of Pinner's favourite annual race.
