The London underground will turn green with Irish traditional music on 12 and 13 March.

For the weekend before St Patrick’s Day (17 March) a number of tube stations will host live music, poetry and dance as part of an initiative organised by Transport for London (TfL) and the embassy of the Republic of Ireland, reports The Irish Post.

So if, like IQ, you find the tube hellish enough on a Saturday even when there isn’t uilleann pipe in sight, you might want to find somewhere else to be that weekend. How about Lollapalooza Brazil?
