A Guide to the Liverpool St. Patrick’s Festival 2020

It’s the second year of our St. Patrick’s Festival and our annual celebration of Irish culture and heritage promises to be even bigger and diverse! With a total of 9 events over the course of the first three weeks of March, there’s something for everyone, from live cooking experiences with Galway chef, Jp McMahon, to singing your heart out to Beeswing with The Whistlin’ Donkeys. In this short guide, we’ll take you on a tour of what’s to come in St Patrick’s Festival 2020.


The Irish Cookbook Launch with author and chef, Jp McMahon | Sun 1st March | 7pm | £15

Our Festival begins on the eve of Sunday 1st March with something we all love—food! And Irish food at that. Galway-based author and chef Jp McMahon is touring the country promoting his new The Irish Cookbook which contains a whopping 480 Irish recipes, from best-loved traditional dishes to lesser-known gems.


On the night, Jp will be treating us to some on-stage live cooking, tasters from the book, a talk about his experiences compiling these recipes, and will of course, be answering all your food-related questions!


The book is £35, but we’ve managed to secure over 50% off for everyone who comes! You can book tickets now (with or without the book) by clicking here!


The Whistlin’ Donkeys Fri 6th March | 7pm | £15

It’s been a couple of years since the Donkeys were last here and they’re making up for their brief hiatus with a very special St Patrick’s Festival performance on Friday 6th March! Tickets are sold out already but get in touch for cancellations.


Charlie and the Bhoys | Sat 7th March | 7pm | £10
