|Where:||London at Trafalgar Square|
|When:||Sunday nearest 17th March|
|Time:||11.30 - 2pm with other activities to follow|
Irish culture and traditions are enthusiastically celebrated in London each year at the popular St Patricks Day Parade and Festival, held on the Sunday nearest to the Patron Saints feast day in March. Expect dancers, musicians, marching bands, lots of green clothes and hair, comedy nuns and leprechauns and all things Irish! The parade begins in Piccadilly and weaves its way over a mile-and-a-half route through Trafalgar Square to Whitehall. Later in the day there are performances from Irish comedians and bands (see link to event website for full details) and all afternoon there is an Irish food market selling a wide variety of produce from the Emerald Isle – we can recommend the Irish Stew.
In 2017 it will be held on Sunday March 19th.
When we went in 2016 the parade reached Trafalgar Square just before 1pm.
