Where to go on St. Patrick’s Day

Published On February 20, 2012 | By We Love Brighton | Archive

Saint Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17, the date of Patrick’s death. It is celebrated both in and outside of Ireland, as both a liturgical and non-liturgical holiday. In the dioceses of Ireland it is both a solemnity and a holy day of obligation and outside of Ireland, it can be a celebration of Ireland itself.  Here a short guide about what to do in Brighton on this day.

1. FREEBASS – Brighton’s Biggest Free Party!

Coming on stronger than a crate of Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day and hosted by Mr Natural alongside the cream of Brighton’s bass scene plus special guest legends rocking up every time. You know the coup by now. Original Brighton material. 100% underground. No faking. No sell out. FREEBASS roadblock’s every time so early arrival is essential to avoid the queues. Don’t say we didn’t tell you!

Venue: Concorde 2

2. The Black Fields

A St. Patrick’s Day Party with The Black Fields! Following their sold out EP launch in 2011 The Black Fields return to the Hope for an extra special St. Patrick’s Day show. Blending together their influences of country, blues, rock and gypsy folk, their live performances scream the true grit of music to dance, drink and party to. Charismatic, energetic and great story tellers, the Black Fields put themselves and the audience into the creative pictures painted by the dramatic song subjects and punchy rhythmic backline.

Venue: Hope
