Attend the St Patrick's Day Parade and Festival

It's that time of year again, when everyone remembers their Irish heritage, and Diageo relaxes, happy that it will once again be a profitable year. Cynicism aside, it's a great opportunity to celebrate the importance of Irish people to modern London, and the cultural contribution they have made, to help make the city the diverse and interesting place it is today.

Today's St Patrick's Day parade is set to draw over 100,000 people, for a lively celebration with floats, marching bands and groups representing the Irish Counties, processing through Central London, and a programme of music and events in Trafalgar Square from noon.
