If you want to see me in a Victorian bonnet, now is the time! I am very proud to announce I will be partaking in the festivities by providing three Dragon Quests where wanna be knights hunt down the name of our St George's dragon with Edith Baker (me) and Julius Drake and three 20 minute talks on St George MythBusters.
