About St Patrick’s Day - Old Town Take Over

St Patrick’s Day-Old Town Take Over

Clear your weekend and take Monday off!

It’s back and bigger than ever! Taking over 12 of your favourite Old Town Venues.

From the edge of the Grassmarket all the way up George IV Bridge, down the Mile and back along the Cowgate we will be turning the town green.

Keep your eyes peeled for our wee green pint pot cards, get them stamped in any venue, get some free stuff. Easy peasy.

With a cheeky warm up session on Thursday 14th in Whistlebinkies with French Rockers RESCUE RANGERS or if bouncing is more your cup of tea you may be lucky enough to snap up a golden ticket to the last ever Church Edinburgh at the The Mash House with the Legendary LTJ Bukem DJ (Although they have probably all gone in the time it took me to type this)

There is too much to list it all here – 34 bands, 36 DJ’s, 6 Nations Final, Football, Thousands of hats & Hundreds of limited-edition T shirts to give away. It’s Party Time!
Jump over to the events calendar to see everything that’s going on.
