Where to celebrate St Patrick's Day in London

It’s nearly St Patrick’s Day – so it’s time to don your green garments.

If you’re stuck in London unable to celebrate in Ireland, fear not, because there’s plenty to do.

From traditional Irish dance classes and live music to comedy (or a heavy night on the town), there are so many ways to mark the occasion.

These are some of our top picks taking place either on the day itself, March 17, or across the weekend.

Get booking, because most of these will be packed.

Jameson’s House

Tickets can be booked here.

Taking over the Bike Shed in Shoreditch, Jameson’s will be providing comedy, drinks, live music, and more – with each room in the venue offering something different.

Angel Comedy Club

Tickets can be booked here.

Funny Feckers: Return of the Craic will take place at The Bill Murray in Angel, featuring a mix of Irish comics.

The first date on March 17 is sold out, but the second go on Sunday still has availability.

St Patrick’s Day Run
