St Patrick's Day in London

Singing, dancing, a parade and a pint or two - the Irish have always known how to party and celebrating St Patrick's Day in London is no exception. St Patrick’s Day in London is a chance for Irish London (and, of course, anyone and everyone who's Irish-at-heart) to hit the streets and show the city the true meaning of the word ‘craic’.

Thanks TimeOut. Got excited about a Bank Holiday this month, only to be disappointed when I looked at the calendar. Try to not copy and paste from previous years!

Good day my name is Mr. Anthony Capron. Is there anyway that I can contact the personel in charge of the St. Patricks Day Parade event for 2017. I would like for my band to come and participate in the parade and enjoy the beauty that London has to offer. I am from the Bahamas by the way. My band is the Urban Renewal 2.0 Band. If the coordinators read this they can make contact with me at capron3403@gmail.com or polo_ace_91@hotmail.com and also 1 (242)328-1728/9

@Thomas H East London is best for that kind of thing! Liverpool Street and Old Street. There are plenty of independent cafes, design shops and small gallery spaces in the area. Try "The Attendant" for coffee and brunch, the atmosphere is chilled and they play good music too.  Brick Lane is also an area worth checking out for cool street art, biiiiig vintage and record shops and more good food. It's a good place for creatives. If you're into music go to "Rough Trade".  Spitalfields market is a 5 minute walk from Liverpool Street station too so go there for lunch or something!
Shoreditch isn't far away from there either so you could head over in the evening for drinks (Queen of Hoxton and Bedroom Bar which is good for cocktails and live music) or for a bigger night out try XOYO or Cargo. It's definitely worth wondering around there in the day too for galleries etc. Just spend a day wondering about in East London!

If you're in North London try Camden Town for their markets and some cheap(er) bars and music venues.
I hope this helps!

Also there's a great festival-esq night of Jazz/ Afrobeat music on the 24th March, a great way to kick off a 4 day weekend! It's called Tantrums - Resident Advisor link here - http://ow.ly/XUa9L

Oh I love Suede, I think Brad Anderton has got a terrific voice, a bit annoying sometimes but generally good. In Britpop I also like Shed 7 when they did Go For Gold.
