Today marks the feast day of one of the most renowned patron saints in the world, Saint Patrick.

Originally born in Romania, Patrick was a Christian missionary and a bishop in Ireland during the 1400s. He is famed for bringing the religion to the country, baptising people and establishing schools, churches and monasteries.

Nowadays, St. Patrick’s Day is honoured worldwide by colourful parades, festivals and events.

We’ve rounded up the best ways to celebrate in Hull. Don’t miss out on this fun activity spanning across the city.
