St George’s Festivities Leatherhead 20th April


St George’s Day Tour of the City of London

Visit Leadenhall Market to commemorate St. George, the patron saint of England, who is a central figure in the country’s history and early lore. In suitably patriotic tradition, the Morris Men of Ewell St Mary’s will once again be performing in the Market on 23 April from 1.30pm.

The Market is the perfect place to celebrate St George’s Day – sample the best fish and chips at Chamberlains restaurant, some of the tastiest English cheese at Cheese at Leadenhall, fine English sparkling wine from Amathus or traditional real ale from The Lamb Tavern.


Our 40th Year

ESMMM – 40 years on and still going strong. We’re digging through the archives and plan to show a series of photographs covering the four decades that ESMMM have been in existence.

These pictures were both taken outside St. Mary’s Church, Ewell. The shot on the left is from 1981 and from left to right are Peter Collins, John Tucker, Alan Mead, Nigel Bird, Chris Pottinger, David Dance and fiddler Andy Perrin. Sadly, John and Chris have passed on. On the right, in 2019, are Peter Collins, Alan Mead, Alan Greenwood, Russell Dewhurst (Vicar of St Mary’s, Ewell), Ray Watson and Bob Hayward.
