Marching bands and a giant dragon were among the many spectacles to thrill the crowds at the area’s biggest St George’s Day event.

More than a thousand folk turned out to watch the parade as it made its way through Heanor, Marlpool and Shipley on Saturday.

The streets were also lined with activities and displays - including jousting from the Nottingham Knights, the Territorial Army’s gun display and a mini-beer festival.
