Alternative Paddy's Day in New Cross

Hugh: It is not the literal past, the 'facts' of history, that shape us, but images of the past embodied in language. 
- Translations, Brian Friel

The New Cross Inn will host an 'Alternative Paddy's Day' (Sunday 17 March 2013) to raise funds to stage a Party in the Park this summer in the New Cross / Deptford / Brockley area this year.

The gig will feature the full range of Irish pop music: Enya. And the other one, who ripped up the Pope. Bald chap. And we think... that's it. The party starts at midday, with bands from 2pm-Midnight. There will be Irish Stew, Irish DJs, Irish shenanigans and Irish surprises. The line-up includes:

Thunder Turtle, Mouth 4 Rusty, Dying Breeds, Edie Capone, Nish/Oliver, Emily Eccles, Ben Holland, Little Big Noise, The Old Kent Roadies. The bands are donating their performances for this fundraiser.

Admission is £3 and all proceeds go to the “Party in the Park” fund.
