Those wanting to use St George’s Day as a chance to find out more about the history of the town will be able to join the heritage walks with Paul Hammond, covering the Town Hall, George Street and Market Hill.
St George’s Day starts at 11am in both Market Hill and St George’s Square on Saturday 23 April, and will run until 6pm.
