Liverpool is to stage its first annual St George's Day Festival in April, the city council has announced.

The free day-long event will take place on 21 April - the closest Sunday to St George's Day, which is on 23 April.

The festivities, around the St George's Quarter, will feature medieval-themed entertainment, music, a fun fair, kids' fancy dress contest and a hog roast.

Officials said they hoped the event would become a "highlight of Liverpool's cultural calendar".

Gillian Miller, of the St George's Quarter group, said: ''We hope that the event will grow each year and help to promote Liverpool's rich heritage.''
