That well-loved time of the year is fast approaching us once again in Liverpool. Every year our city goes all out to celebrate St Paddy’s Day, and this year is no different. Get your Irish flags at the ready and feast your eyes on what Liverpool has to offer you on 17th March…
1. B*witched at Bongo’s Bingo
If you were lucky enough to bag yourself a ticket to see Ireland’s most renowned girl band on St Patrick’s day then you’re one of the few lucky ones. If not, say ‘C’est la vie’ as Bongo’s Bingo are releasing further tickets at 6pm on Thursday 2nd March due to such high demand. The event will take place at the Camp and Furnace, combining B*witched and bingo with a twist.
2. Celebrate with a pint of Guinness in one of Liverpool’s many Irish pubs
O’Niells on Hanover Street, Shenanigans on Tithebarn Street, Flanagan’s Apple on Mathew Street, Pogue Mahone on Seel Street and The Irish House on Ranelagh Street, will all offer you a cracking pint of Guinness to celebrate in style.
3. Concert Square
The hustle and bustle of Concert Square is never ending, but St Patrick’s Day always sends the square into overdrive. Why not pop into Soho or Modo for a quick pitcher or cocktail before heading to everyone’s well-loved Irish club McCooley’s to dance the day and night away.
4. Watch Liverpool’s St Patrick’s Day parade
The parade is the second annual celebration through the city centre. It begins at 3pm from the Old Irish Centre on Mount Pleasant. The Liverpool Irish flute band, Fianna Phadraig pipe band, Cambria Drum band and Manchester Community pipe band will all be involved.
5. Independent Liverpool’s St Patrick’s Day weekender
With tickets priced at £7.50, the Great Baltic Warehouse is throwing a drink-the-bar-dry extravaganza. The bar will be packed full of Guinness alongside a collection of Irish whiskeys and gins. A collection of restaurants will be offering Irish stew, Guinness pies and Irish hotdogs amongst piles of soda bread. Further details will be released nearer to the date, tickets are available at: https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Liverpool/The-Great-Baltic-Warehouse/Independent-Liverpools-St-Patricks-Day-Weekender/12907664/
