17th of March – St Patrick’s Day

This Irish celebration of one of Ireland’s Patron Saints has attracted growing global attention and can be a boom for businesses. Millions of people get involved, spending on all things green, having office and private party events and outings to restaurants and bars.

1st of April – April Fools

April Fool’s Day appears to stem back to a celebration of the turning of the seasons around springtime. It’s a day for general silliness and the celebration of the practical joke. Although it’s not a well-known ‘selling’ opportunity, there are opportunities to engage with your customers and create brand awareness with perhaps a few ‘well-considered’ jokes.

1st of May – May Day

An ancient festival to celebrate the coming of Spring. This event usually incorporates street marches as well as the singing of madrigals and folk dancing.

17th of June – Father’s Day

Father’s Day is worth only half of that spent on Mother’s Day, but millions of pounds will still be spent on this occasion nevertheless. Remember it’s not just for dads, it’s for fathers-to-be, fathers-in-law, stepfathers, grandfathers and father figures…
