The mighty Dragon from Beesel on the Floriade.

Since 2001 I live in a wonderful little village called Beesel. It is known for “The slaying of the Dragon”, a theaterplay depicting the story of St. George and the Dragon. It is only performed once in the 7 years. The last show was in 2009 and we have to wait till 2016 for the next one.

I have been a board member of the committee that organizes it since 2007. Together with all the volunteers I participate for realizing this play. Something to be proud of. The story even inspired me to make my Dragon jewellery collection.

DRA 004 ring 2351This year, in January, the municipality of Beesel asked the board if we would represent them on the Floriade. The Floriade is a world-horticultural event that happens once in the 10 years in The Netherlands. This time is was in Venlo which is our neighbour city. After a public meeting in the village, more than 80 people volunteerd to do a special performance with short parts of the play.

After a lot of preparation we presented “St. George and The Dragon” on 29 and 30 September. No need to say we had a blast last weekend. The two days flew by and I couldn’t resist sharing some pictures of them here. Enjoy!
