The world is celebrating the International Women’s Day next week. Get yourself in the spirit of gender equality with this Sunday’s March for Women! The event will be led by Dr Helen Pankhurst, great-granddaughter of suffragette leader Emeline Pankhurst, Sadiq Khan and Annie Lennox.
It’s that time of the year when not all buds in the city have blossomed yet but the streets will wear colour green. In honour of St Patrick and all the Irish. The main event of course is the annual parade leaving Piccadilly at noon to proceed to Trafalgar Square where dance schools and marching bands will dance many a reel and play many a cheerful tune for you to enjoy. Do you know the difference between the hard shoe and the soft shoe? If you do, Riverdance away!
