On the day itself (Friday 17 Mar), you can expect a full on Irish party with music and drink – think B*Witched, U2, Westlife and Guinness – plus downstairs at Leicester Square in Klub, from midnight until 3am, you get very special guest DJ Phillip Andrew, who’s flying in from LA, mixing up a Hollywood house music dancefloor Riverdance.
