St Patrick's Day Festival
12th March 2023
Celebrate London’s St Patrick’s Day Festival on Sunday 12 March in Trafalgar Square. There’ll be the best of Irish arts, culture, food, music to enjoy, and more, including the spectacular annual parade.
Now in its 20th year, the Mayor’s annual shindig has become a highlight of London’s cultural calendar, as Londoners and visitors unite in celebrating the great contributions Irish people have made to the city.
St Patrick’s Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the enduring strength of relationship between the British and Irish.
More than 50,000 people are expected to join the annual procession of Irish marching bands, dance troupes and pageantry. The parade starts at Hyde Park Corner, then travels through Piccadilly, St James’s Street, Pall Mall, Cockspur Street and Whitehall.
