St Patrick’s Day in London

Things to do

The Irish really know how to celebrate, so when it comes to St Patrick’s Day in London, the city’s Irish community have no problem showing us how it’s done. A day to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland, the occasion is always one big welcoming bash. Expect lots of dancing, hearty traditional dishes, a huge parade and as many pints as you can handle. The official holiday lands annually on March 17 (a Tuesday in 2020).

Kimono: ‘Kyoto to Catwalk’

4 out of 5 stars
Museums V&A, South Kensington

A beguiling look at the history of Japan’s most iconic garment, from the Edo Period (1603-1868) through to the Dutch kimono trade, Victorian obsessions with Japan and modern reinterpretations. This is another excellent exhibition from a museum known for its fashion blockbusters.


4 out of 5 stars
Theatre Drama Wyndham's Theatre, Charing Cross Road

Legendary playwright Tom Stoppard’s alleged final play about the devastating rise and fall of Vienna’s Jewish community in the twentieth century. To see a vast cast and an enormous amount of history crammed into its two-and-a-half hours. It’s a powerful and sincere tribute to a vanished people.
