Culturae Mundi marks St Patrick’s Day

spd2012

On Saturday, March 17, the Old Days restaurant (124 Lower Ford Street, Coventry CV1 5PQ) will come alive and look green as Culturae Mundi joins the people of Ireland to mark the prestigious St. Patrick’s Day.

The day is a cultural and religious holiday which commemorates Saint Patrick, described as the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.

St. Patrick’s Day is generally characterized by the attendance of church services, wearing of green attire and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating, and drinking alcohol, which is often proscribed during the rest of the season.

There will be plenty of Irish food, Irish music and a lot of Irish friends to make at the Old Days restaurant.

The event is free and starts at 7pm.

The celebration offers everyone the opportunity to experience how being Irish feels, as it’s said that ‘everyone is an Irish on St Patrick’s Day.’ The day brings people from different cultural backgrounds to celebrate what the people of Ireland have up their sleeves.

As has become customary of the day, everybody wears the colour green. And it is a tradition to pinch anyone who is not clad in green on St. Patrick’s Day.

The Culturae Mundi team, which brings together diverse cultures within Coventry city through several platforms, promises a worthwhile and another remarkably entertaining and hugely educative event, after a string of highly successful events this year.
