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 the relationship between the British and Irish people.

Irish national treasure Panti Bliss will be Grand Marshal of this year’s spectacular parade.

More than 50,000 people are expected to join the annual procession of Irish marching bands, dance troupes and pageantry. The parade starts near Green Park station, then travels through Piccadilly, St James’s Street, Pall Mall, Cockspur Street and Whitehall. 

The action then moves to Trafalgar Square with a world-class line-up, in partnership with London Irish Centre. Expect family concerts, children’s films and youth performances, as well community choirs, schools and dancing.

Alongside the main stage, International Chef of the Year 2019, Anna Haugh will be running food demos. There’ll also be children’s workshops so come along and join in the fun.
