The luck of the Irish is back on our side as we prepare for a HUGE celebration this St Patrick’s Day in Digbeth!

The big news is that the St Patrick’s Day Parade is BACK in Digbeth – following its 4 year hiatus, we’re extra excited for this year’s parade! Did you know this is the third biggest Paddy’s Day parade in the world, with over 80,000 attending?
