The Brunel Museum is marking St Patrick’s Day 2021 with music and drama!
We will be celebrating the contribution of the Irish community to the creation of the Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel built through soft ground underwater anywhere in the world, and we are inviting you to celebrate with us at home.
Join us for our film release on March 17, 2021
How to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at home
Since we’ll be celebrating the day at home this year to comply with social distancing guidelines, here is something to help you celebrate. Remember:
Decorate your home green!
Have a green drink and eat an Irish dish.
Make a Leprechaun hat.
The Leprechaun is one of Ireland’s more famous characters from Irish folklore. Leprechauns live in underground caves to find safety away from humans who seek to capture them to be granted 3 wishes! Find some fun facts about Leprechauns here.
Set a leprechaun trap to see if you’re visited by a leprechaun
You will need to set the trap the night before St. Patrick’s Day, and it might be that you awake to discover signs that leprechauns have visited the it!
But you can always send a Leprechaun card to a friend
Decorate your house with shamrock flowers
The shamrock is a small clover and is the symbol of Ireland Here is a small-shamrock-template for hat decoration you can use.
Eat Irish food!
The Irish like their ‘poundies’! We like this Champ recipe.
It goes really well with an Irish stew!
For your drink you can just add a few drops of green food colouring to it!
Play some good Irish Music!
We like ‘The Trip to Athlone’ Click here to hear a taste of it.
We hope you have enjoyed your party!
You can now make a shamrock wish and share it with your family! Click here for a shamrock wish template.
