Glossop is hoping to hold the biggest St Patrick’s Day celebrations the town has ever had, by hosting an Irish festival on Norfolk Square on March 15.

Any performers who want to take part or stallholders who would like to book a pitch are asked to email organiser Paul Bohan on

The festival, or Lá Fhéile Pádraig, organised by Glossop catholic community group Good Things and Glossopdale Community Radio and hopes to raise funds for the town’s Christmas lights switch on 2014.
