Michaelmas

Where: Countrywide
When: 29th September
Time: All day

 

Michaelmas is the feast day of dargon-slayer St Michael, who was  popular during medieval times and had many churches dedicted to him. Traditionally  a roast goose was eaten on this day – September is when geese are in their prime condition.  The festival is not as widely known as it used to be and used to be a major landmark in the calendar. Also associated with this season are Michaelmas Daisies.
