ALL EVENTS WERE HELD AT CENTENARY SQUARE BIRMINGHAM
Live Audio Description

A hundred thousand welcomes! Join us in our celebration of the Irish routes flowing through the foundations of this city.

We built this city, we built it together. Tonight, we dance to the beats of the drum and sound of the strings, celebrating the importance of heritage, community and family. 

A grand lineup of Irish musicians and performers take to the stage embodying the spirit of Irish culture; from performing rousing renditions of traditional tunes, to looking to the future and what it means to be Irish in today’s Birmingham. 

Culminating in a finale showcasing several of the finest Irish artists in Birmingham, bring your besties, your maimeó and your dancing shoes, as we throw a ceilidh the likes of which Centenary Square has never seen before!
