From folklore and myth to animated favourites, all things dragon will be celebrated at West Stow Saxon Village.

On June 23 and 24 at the village close to Bury St Edmunds, the fourth annual Dragon Fest will return for two delightful days of fun and fire.

Returning by popular demand will be the crowd-pleasing Epico the Dragon. Children of all ages are invited to be a hero for the day and join Epico in his Land of Adventure.

The event will also feature fire breathing performances, gruesome tales from Beowulf and Grendel Puppet Theatre, and the Wulflings re-enactment group with their exciting tales of Arthurian Legends.

Other activities include LEGO building, archery, face-painting and dragon nest building.

Dragon Fest will run from 10am until 5pm on both days. Advance tickets are £8 for adults and £5 for children and booking is strongly advised.
