Irish Community & Culture
We have taken this decision as a precaution, and in line with global actions being taken in response to the fast-changing coronavirus crisis.
We are equally sad to announce that the London St. Patrick’s Day Festival, for which we are Creative Partner, has been cancelled. See statement from Mayor of London below.
The health and wellbeing of our vulnerable and elderly clients is our top priority.
We are also very conscious of the safety of our audiences, artists, volunteers, and staff.
We simply cannot justify bringing together crowds of people, especially the vulnerable, in the midst of this pandemic.
Many months of planning and preparation went into our programme, so we postpone these events with a heavy heart.
However, we will be back.
As well as planning service continuation for our vulnerable clients, we are already working hard to reschedule events and will have updates soon.
Full refunds will be made to all ticketholders who would like a refund.
Any queries to [email protected]
Kind regards and stay safe,
London Irish Centre CEO
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “London’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations are an annual highlight for so many people. So I am incredibly disappointed that this year’s event has had to be cancelled as key performers and parade participants are no longer able to take part due to the ongoing threat of coronavirus.
“London’s Irish community makes a huge contribution to our great city. I recognise that the unavailability of key performers and parade participants leaves no choice but to cancel. I know this will be extremely disappointing news for so many Londoners and visitors to our capital.”
