Why not come suitably clad in red and white and wave your flag for St George and Merrie England?
Now in its third year, the entertainment at 3pm in Thaxted Church, promises something new for 2010.
Not only will there be Maypole Dancing, but Rickstones Revellers will perform a traditional Mummers Play, best described as early pantomime and based loosely on the legend of St George and the Dragon, intending to show the struggle between good and evil.
And to finish off the afternoon, enjoy a tea and delicious homemade cakes.
