St Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival
Time Out says
London's Irish community heads to Trafalgar Square to celebrate their patron saint – and everyone's invited.
This event has been cancelled.
The Irish are experts when it comes to partying. They’re so good, in fact, they even have a special untranslatable phrase – the craic – to describe their unique brand of conviviality. With Trafalgar Square as the setting for London’s official bash in celebration of their patron saint, a blast is pretty much guaranteed.
This year the extravaganza is taking place Sunday March 15 and it is set to see more than 50,000 turning out for Irish food, dancing and a giant parade featuring pageantry, floats and music from Imelda May and KILA.
