The St Patrick’s Day Parade Afterparty – Saturday 18th March
The St Patrick’s Day parade is on Saturday March 18th this year and once again, we are looking forward to a great day when we come together and celebrate all things Irish in our part of the world here in Oslo, Norway.
As usual, we are planning an event after the parade so that we can sit and chat, enjoy good food and drink and most of all, good company. This year, the afterparty will be at Posthallen which is the very impressive old Norwegian general post office, just off Karl Johan’s gate.
We will have a large room to ourselves with plenty of round-tabled seating so we that can sit back and enjoy the great line-up of entertainment in comfort.
Venue: Posthallen, Prinsensgate 8, 1059 Oslo.
Time: 2pm, doors open
Food and drink: Asian buffet, all you can eat. It’s an extensive selection of hot and cold food with Thai, Japanese, Chinese and Mongolian influences. We will have access to a full bar throughout.
Entertainment: We have a more varied line-up than ever, including Magician Chriss, St Patrick story-telling, Mná Singers, Saoirse singers, Irish dancers and Irish rock musician, Eamonn Dowd. Of course, there will also be a face-painting corner as well as lots of raffle prizes throughout.
