Community stalls

The Mayor of London is inviting community organisations to be part of London St Patrick’s Day Festival 2019. This is an open call for proposals to engage with event audiences on the day in Trafalgar Square.

 We want to showcase the best community work in London and offer audiences opportunities to take part in the activities on the day and beyond.

We hope these community spaces will have lots of energy and will help the audiences learn something new about Ireland, London Irish and the Irish Diaspora. You may be highlighting social justice, a health campaign, or arts and culture relating to the Irish Diaspora.

Applications will be opening soon. To express your interest, please email [email protected]
