England’s patron saint the latest to be celebrated during a year of internationally themed events

SEATON Tramway’s series of internationally themed events took on a distinctly red and white look last week, as they celebrated St George’s Day.

English flags flew from the carriages and traditional fare was served up at the Tramstop Restaurant, in Colyton, in honour of the patron saint.

Throughout 2012 the tram company will be celebrating national days from countries across the globe including Ireland, Norway, France, Portugal the USA, Jamaica and Mexico.

There will be the sights, sounds and tastes of each country with national dishes being served at the Tramstop Restaurant and staff dressing in traditional costumes and a range of special entertainment.

Seaton Tramway is also planning to put on some very memorable events between June 2 and 5 to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

And in July the Tramway will stage a week-long celebration to mark the 2012 London Olympics.
