London Underground Stations Will Become Live Music Venues For St Patrick's Day

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

If you’re not a fan of traditional Irish music, Guinness and merriment, try to avoid the Tube on March 12 and 13th. TfL has partnered with the Irish Embassy to bring St Patrick’s Day to London’s usual misery hotspots, and will host live music performances -- hopefully more than a couple of buskers -- at a number of Underground stations around the capital.

The transport body hasn’t yet revealed where the shows will be held, but told us to expect Irish music, poetry and dancers. Sounds like a good, if slightly crowdy, time.

A special exhibition will also take place at Moorgate station, to recognise the contributions of Irish workers to the development of the London’s rail networks. Time to dust off your green socks, novelty hats and stories about how you're a sixteenth Irish on your ma's side. [IrishPost]
