The mayor suggests raising a glass to St George
Music fans are celebrating St George's Day at a free folk concert in central London's Trafalgar Square.
The event "showcases some of the great things that England has given to the world," a Greater London Authority spokesman said.
Those performing include singer Seth Lakeman, violinist Eliza Carthy, The Demon Barbers and Jim Moray.
The gig is the culmination of a week of St George's Day celebrations organised by London Mayor Boris Johnson.
Mr Johnson said that St George's Day should be an event that English people get excited about.
He said: "What better time than St George's Day to bring us all together to express the pride we have in our country.
"Where better to celebrate our patron saint than in the English capital?"
