Official celebrations kick off on St Patrick’s Day eve, while Irish band The Gathering will be performing from 7pm on Saturday. Then, back it up on Sunday with a full day of festivities.

Now that’s St Patrick’s Day done right.

Starting things early, The Cambus Wallace will be kicking off their weekend of celebrations on Thursday 14 March, so gear up for a big weekend of dancing, singing, feasting and drinking.
