WINCHESTER residents can start their St Patrick’s Day celebrations early on Thursday (March 14).

All 49 pubs across the country are taking part with the dance starting at 8pm, aiming to beat the current record, 10,036 people.
Ursula Haller, Winchester O’Neill’s manager, said: “We really want the people of Winchester to join us to help smash the world record and have great fun at the same time.
“Every year we look at ways to celebrate our favourite event, St Patrick’s Day, while also trying to give something back to the local community.”
