The St Patrick's Day Parade takes place every year in London. It involves marching bands, floats, street theatre and more. All 32 Irish counties are represented, dressed in their traditional county colours. This year's parade takes place on 17 March, beginning at 12 noon in Piccadilly. It then proceeds to Trafalgar Square, where you can enjoy the free St Patrick's Day Festival until 6pm. Look out for The Puca, a giant inflatable dragon, winding its way through the streets during the parade.
Ireland's culture, including a wide range of traditional dancing; a comedy tent hosted by the London Irish Comedy Festival; a film tent showing film shorts by Irish filmmakers; and a food market with the chance to sample produce from the Emerald Isle.
Meeting under the Clock at London Waterloo Station at 11.30am (Opposite platform 12)
