London comes out to celebrate at St Patrick’s Festival


A sea of green, white and gold enveloped the country as the Irish community and its many friends came out in force to celebrate our national day.

More Entertainment:


In a weekend where Irish flavoured parades and festivals popped up across Britain The Irish Post was on hand to ensure the fun flowed and the crowds were happy.

At the London St Patrick’s Day parade and festival we took our role as media sponsor as serious as ever and added a few extra treats on the day.

With thousands in Trafalgar Square for the annual event The Irish Post stall was buzzing all day long!

Revellers came along to say hi, have their face painted and grab a copy of the paper but most walked away with a balloon or two as well.

The heaving crowds filled the square for an afternoon of music, song and dance on Sunday – all kept in check by host for the day Rob Broderick.

The award-winning comedian – one half of comedy act Abandoman – even managed to get the whole crowd to turn and give us a special wave at the Irish Post stall!

And the craic was just as mighty elsewhere in the country – with parades heading out in Sandwell, Brent and Nottingham.

Thanks for another great St Patrick’s Day!
