Made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century, St Patrick’s day is observed by the Catholic Church, Anglican Communion (in particular the Church of Ireland), the Easter Orthodox Church, the Lutheran Church and, of course, that famous East Maitland institution known simply as The Old Victoria! The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Today it is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival so it is only fitting that The Old Victoria ensures the day is filled with fun and festivities.
