We are only days away from the launch of the 2014 St Patricks Festival on Friday 7th March at the Old Library in the Custard Factory.

For £10 come along and enjoy a two course dinner, entertainment from The Holy Show Band and the fancy footwork of the Jean Davis Dancers.

Tickets are available from Pat@irishinbirmingham.com or by calling 07966 580606

Up and down the UK outside of the usual St Patrick’s Festival celebrations there are various Tradfest events that draw audiences & participants from far afield.

Now 4 young Birmingham based musicians, Dan Green, Ciaran Clifford, Conor Healy & Hugh Sheehan all experienced musicians themselves – have got together to plan & deliver the first Birmingham tradfest – aptly named after the reel ‘The Trip to Birmingham’

Running from Friday 28th November through to Sunday 30th November there will be concerts, sessions, ceili’s & workshops around venues such as The Irish Centre & Ceol Castle.

Obviously to stage an event on this scale takes a fair amount of planning & financial outlay – a huge undertaking for these four young lads.  If you or anyone you know anyone would be interested in sponsoring a part of The Tradfest please contact Pat on 07966 580606 for more details.
