St Patrick's Day Parade London

http://www.londontown.com/LondonEvents/StPatricksDayFestivalParade/96d60/

Sunday, 16 March, 2014 - 12:00 to 14:00

The theme for this year's St Patrick's Day Parade is 'World of Dance' as over 100,000 people flock to the capital to celebrate Ireland's patron saint. The London parade is on the Sunday closest to 17th March - so in 2014 that's Sunday 16th March - with floats representing all 32 Irish counties as the procession makes its way from Green Park, close to Hyde Park Corner, around Piccadilly Circus, along Haymarket via Trafalgar Square to end at Whitehall. In Trafalgar Square there's free entertainment with live shows, music and a huge outdoor ceili as well as comedy and a food market, from 12 noon. Of course, the best places to celebrate are the pubs and Catholic churches throughout London, with their mix of religion, music and good cheer. Keep an eye on where the real London Irish go after the parade and you could be in for a memorable evening.

I'm proposing being at Trafalgar Square for the free entertainment, but there is also the parade starting at Green Park (don't know time yet).

    Hi everyone, some more information on the events at Trafalgar Square. Expect it will be packed so I suggest we meet by the statue at the front of Charing Cross station then head on to Trafalgar Square. I will change meetup time to 11.30. It sounds like it will be a fabulous event and with tons of fantastic photo opportunities!! Please remember if you cannot make the event to change your RSVP to No.

    The free St Patrick's Day Festival in Trafalgar Square is a great chance to experience Irish culture: you can enjoy traditional music, dancing, comedy and film

    Headlining the festival is Riverdance, the world-famous Irish dance troupe that is returning to London ahead of its 20th anniversary tour. Other acts not to miss include performances from cast members of musical The Commitments, Irish folk group Kila and the likes of stand-up stars Aisling Bea and Jarlath Regan in the London Irish Comedy Festival Marquee.
