If you’re reading this on Thursday, you might not be aware that it’s St George’s Day, the feastday of the patron saint of several countries including England. And last Saturday, members of the Royal Society of St George Denmark Branch and friends gathered at Peter Liep’s Hus in Dyrehaven to mark the occasion with a four-course meal that of course included roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, and also stilton cheese specially flown in. The black tie affair involved dancing, drinking and a few verses of old favourites ‘Jerusalem’, ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and ‘Rule Britannia’. “The Royal Society of St George is for everyone and anyone who wants to celebrate and enjoy all the best bits of England, its culture, cuisine and traditions,” commented society president Simon C Mears.
