St George’s Day Parade

On Tuesday the 23rd of April, the St George’s Day Parade will be making its way through Thamesgate shopping centre.

Hosted by Gravesham Borough Council and Cohesion Plus, the St George’s Day Parade has long been a feature of Gravesend, with a tremendous display making its way through the town to mark the special occasion. The celebration is among the largest in England, and plays a huge part in bringing together the diverse communities in the Gravesham Borough.

Same Sky have been involved in the parade for the past eight years, working with over 1,000 children across 30 different schools in the run up to the day itself. The parade marks a time of embracing the diverse and varied communities within Gravesend, with St George himself having believed in equality and tolerance, fighting for the rights of soldiers to practice their own faiths.

At Thamesgate Shopping Centre, we are all looking forward to enjoying the show as the local community puts on something sure to be special. Many of the local schools have been involved in recent years, with 2019 expected to be no different. The parade will be making its way through Thamesgate Shopping Centre for this year alone, due to building works at the town centre, and we at Thamesgate could not be happier. We are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to welcome one of our favourite events of the year through our own doors.
