Dear Resident/Business Owner,
The Birmingham St Patrick’s Festival Parade is being held on Sunday 17th March 2013.
The Parade will start from Camp Hill at 12 noon. However, to ensure the safety of all concerned in the Parade, it is necessary to close some roads in the Digbeth area. The list of road closures can be found here (PDF file link).
Access to Digbeth will be restricted on Sunday 17th March from 06:00 to approximately 16:30. Certain roads in the area will be closed until 21:00, mainly those around Bradford Street.
All times for reopening roads are provisional, as roads will only be reopened when it is safe to do so.
If you are trading, or need access to your premises on Sunday 17th March, please contact the Festival Office as soon as possible, and no later than 8th March to enable us to process access passes:
Festival Office: 45 Alcester Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B12 0PH
Phone: 07919 563 195
Please note that access passes will only be issued to provide car access to private/off-street car parks. Passes do not entitle holders to park on a closed road.
Whilst we wish to keep disruption to a minimum, and allow you or your customers/users access to your premises, there may be times throughout the day when, for safety reasons, we have to restrict access completely. This is kept to a minimum and is usually when the Parade passes.
Thank you for your continued support,
Birmingham St Patrick’s Festival
