Ep 306 – St Patrick’s Day Celebrations at the Irish Consulate and Jimmy Cricket Celebrates 50 Years in Show Business

In Part 1… We’re at the Irish Consulate in Manchester celebrating St Patrick’s Day. Hosted by the Consul General, Sarah Mangan, it’s a lively evening of Irish Entertainment. Opening with rousing music from the Fianna Phádraig Pipe Band and closing with traditional dance from the students of the Duffy Travis King Academy, it’s a lively event. Sarah Mangan ties the evening together, paying tribute to the great contribution that the Irish make to society in the UK.

In Part 2… We’re at the Stockport Plaza to celebrate Jimmy Cricket’s 50 years in the entertainment industry. As well as Jimmy’s family orientated performance, we have choral music from Do Your Thing Choir and dance courtesy of Debut Studios. Jimmy has always been a great supporter of charities through his shows and we’re joined by James Nicholas, fundraiser for Francis House Hospice.
