What’s on this Weekend and soon
St. Patrick’s Day Parade – Sunday 13 March
Trafalgar Square is the setting for London’s official bash in celebration of Ireland’s patron saint. As it takes place on Sunday March 13, a sizeable proportion of the population (not all of them Irish by a long chalk) is set to be looking appropriately green till at least Thursday, which is when St Patrick’s Day actually falls. The parade will feature pageantry, floats, music and more. Leaving Piccadilly at midday, it’ll wind its way to the festival in Trafalgar Square, where sports clubs, marching bands and dance schools will entertain the crowds until 6:00pm. A food market will offer Irish beef stew cooked on ‘live fire’ by acclaimed Irish chef John Rellihan, lamb and potato shepherd’s pie from The Pie Cart, Irish brisket from Salt Beef Bros, and fried chicken in Kerrygold butter buns from Butchies.
