Live Irish music and dancing will add to the festive atmosphere at Newcastle Racecourse this weekend during its special event to mark the return of St Patrick’s Day.

The popular Guinness St Patrick’s Raceday will return to the city on Saturday and will feature plenty of Irish entertainment alongside the sporting action of racing and rugby.

On the Guinness-sponsored day at Gosforth Park, where guests can watch the Guinness Six Nations match alongside horse racing, a new option for 2022 will be an Irish stew lunch.
