Hundreds of scouts and guides brought colour and music to York for the St George’s Day parade.

Thought to be the biggest of its kind in England, the parade took place on Sunday (April 22).

Led by the Yorkshire Volunteers Band, and with a number of other bands taking part, it was a feast for the ears as well as the eyes.

The scouts and guides – not to mention brownies, rainbows and Beavers – attended a service at York Minster after they processed through the city.

Then they marched back to their starting point at the Eye of York.
