St Patrick's Day Parade and FestivalThis year's St Patrick's Day festival - the biggest ever held in London - takes place across the entire city with events in 33 boroughs over three days. For the grand finale, the St Patrick's Day Parade brings floats representing all 32 counties of Ireland to central London on Sunday 18th March. The parade makes its way from Green Park via Piccadilly and Whitehall to Trafalgar Square where Eoghan McDermott is joined on stage by the house band of RTE's Late Late Show. There's live music from KILA, followed by the Big St. Patrick's Ceili to get everyone dancing jigs and reels. Tribute will be paid to Cranberries frontwoman, Dolores O'Riordan, led by Lisa Lambe and Orla Gartland. There's more free entertainment with games, arts and crafts, walkabout performances based on Irish myths - look out for characters like Pirate Queen Grainne Mhaol and the giant Fionn MacChuaill. City-wide celebrations include open air Irish dance in Enfield, jazz in Hackney, music classes in Croydon and children's art and crafts workshops in Haringey. Join in with walking tours, open air gigs in Camden Market, Irish films at West End cinemas and Irish art at City Hall.

 

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
