CANCELLED: St Patrick's Day Parade and FestivalDue to the ongoing coronavirus uncertainty, the St Patrick's Day celebrations have been cancelled. A three day citywide celebration of Irish arts, culture, food and music, St Patrick's Festival in London culminates in a colourful (mainly green) parade and a free stage show in Trafalgar Square. Women in sport is the theme of this year's festival with Dublin camogie player Laura Twomey leading the parade on Sunday. The procession of Irish marching bands, energetic dance troupes and spectacular pageantry attracts a crowd of more than 50,000 people as the parade makes its way from Hyde Park Corner via Piccadilly and Whitehall. At Trafalgar Square performers present a showcase of Irish culture and music on the main stage, compered by Derry Girls actor Siobhan McSweeney. Expect to be entertained by local groups performing Irish music, song and dance as well as special performances by Imelda May and KILA, ending with a singalong finale. Also in the square are food demonstrations from International Chef of the Year 2019, Anna Haugh, a replica Irish cottage, children's workshops featuring camogie games, medal making and face painting alongside food and drinks stalls. Events across the capital include a takeover of Camden Market, busking on the Underground, free walking tours and a three-day film festival by Irish Film London.

 

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.
