St George's Day
Kev, Ros, & Producer Josh have decided this is the year that we make a big deal about St George's Day...
After all, St George is the Patron Saint of England!
But what should we do?
Have a proper English Roast?
Paint an England flag on our faces?
Learn Morris Dancing?
All good ideas, but none of them seems BIG enough!
How about sending a terrified breakfast team member to Duxford to fly around in a 1940s Tiger Moth biplane over England's pleasant pastures green?
...with the soundtrack of Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir singing Jerusalem!
So Kev & Josh tossed a coin to see who'd be taking to the skies - and what happened is probably the most English thing ever!
Happy St George's Day
With thanks to:
Ely Cathedral Girls' Choir
