St. Patrick's Day Entertainment ideas from Sternberg Clarke

Thursday, February 20, 2020 - 10:45

If there’s one thing that can be guaranteed come Tuesday 17th March, it will be that St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will be taking place all over the world, despite the fact that there are only 6.5 million Irish people on the planet (give or take a hundred thousand or so). The US goes crazy for it, even dying their rivers in the colours of Ireland, whilst various monuments took on a green glow in solidarity in 2015. Somehow St. Patrick’s Day has taken on a life of its own away from simply drinking a Guinness in the pub with your friends. Now it’s all about the St. Patrick’s Day party entertainment, and Sternberg Clarke has a number of acts on offer to celebrate this time of year:

Irish Dancers

Irish dancing is a merry addition to any party or celebration and it wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without it. A fabulous spectacle – just look at the popularity of Riverdance – Irish step dancing is sure to enchant the guests at any event.

Irish Harp

If one was tasked with naming a famous logo, the Guinness Gaelic harp would take some beating. A beautiful instrument that is synonymous with the Emerald Isle, the Irish harp is the perfect way to begin a St. Patrick’s Day celebration!

Uilleann Pipes

Better known as 'Irish bagpipes', Uilleann Pipes are quieter than the instrument one might hear in Edinburgh or Glasgow. Perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, the pipes are most often played indoors and sitting down, which makes them the perfect form of entertainment for a dinner party.

Irish Ceilidh

A Ceilidh is the entertainment to go for if looking for a more energetic St. Patrick’s Day celebration. A dance that allows amateurs to party along with the professionals to some traditional Gaelic tunes, it is the perfect way to include everyone in the entertainment.

Costumed Characters

It is tremendously fun to dress up for any event, and this is no different on St. Patrick’s Day as various versions of leprechauns take to the streets to celebrate the day in style. Sternberg Clarke can provide a host of Irish characters and costumes for your event.
