Organisers decided to cancel in the light of Coronavirus.
A statement reads:
‘Nottingham’s St Patrick’s Festival celebrations in the Market Square are a highlight in the city’s cultural programme.
‘Energy abounds in music song and dance. The Government has moved into the ‘delay’ stage in relation to Coronavirus. We have decided in goodwill and caution to cancel our festival afternoon concert on March 17th in Old Market Square.
‘On a positive note and gleam of light , we still expect the dome of the Council House to ‘global green’ on St.Patrick’s Night!’
