There will also be traditional German specialties made by the Frog and Onion’s head chef, Küchenchef Derek Myer.

With over four centuries of history, St. George’s is a haunting town. Join Haunted History for a 60 to 75-minute, family-friendly walking tour, which begins and ends at Kings Square.

The Classic Lions return to defend their title having defeated New Zealand in last year’s Final and, anyone who knows their rugby, will quickly appreciate that New Zealand will be on a mission this year to redress last year’s result. Long regarded as one of the best sporting and social events in the international rugby calendar, the Classic allows you to get “up close and personal” with some of recently retired stars of international rugby in a very relaxing setting.
