Birmingham's St Patrick’s Festival postponed

Following community feedback in response to the Covid 19 outbreak, organisers of Birmingham's St Patrick’s Festival Birmingham have announced the 2020 celebration has been postponed.

The team behind the major celebration of Irish culture and heritage - one of the largest in the world - have now promised to deliver ‘a world-class festival experience that Birmingham and the UK expect and deserve later in the year.

The future of the parade was secured thanks to a number of generous and much-needed commitments from new festival supporters Chasetown Civil Engineers and Court Collaboration, who were announced as joint partners earlier in the year. Speaking about the announcement, festival chair, Peter Connolly, said:

“We are devastated to share this news with you, however, we are committed to providing our city with a belated St Patrick’s celebration that we can all be proud of later in the year.

"We are now working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation and look forward to coming back with announcements very soon."
