Ever since the council pulled the funding from the marvellous Southwark Irish Festival the last big fest outside of St. Patrick’s Day in England takes place in the grounds of the Hawth Theatre, Crawley. You can train it from Marylebone and it don’t take too long either! The festival showcases some fabulous musical talent across Britain and Ireland on three live entertainment stages highlighting modern and traditional Irish music and open dance competitions. The children’s entertainment marquee is well attended involving games, song and story with emphasis on Irish traditions and folklore. In addition, sport and cultural identity are each featured prominently with GAA sports live on the big screen’ tug-of-war, a funfair, various food and craft stalls and displays all adding up to a day with a great Irish buzz to it all. All the details are here.
