POST PEOPLE: Drayton Manor St George's Day book launch.

Drayton Manor hosted a double celebration as a special luncheon was held to mark St George's Day and a new book charting the park's history was launched.

Drayton Manor: George and Vera Bryan's Memories of a Family Fun Park was published 56 years almost to the day after Drayton Manor Theme Park opened in 1950.

It provides a fascinating pictorial and anecdotal record of the theme park, which stands on the site of the ancestral home of the Peel family.

The luncheon was attended by key figures from Staffordshire and the region, together with many of the park's past and present employees.
