A number of the County Town's taverns have organised special events to celebrate St Patrick's Day this Sunday.

In the courtyard of Druids Arms in Earl Street, the sweet sound of James Noble and his acoustic guitar will be heard from 3.30pm onwards.

General drinks offers will be available throughout the day so get down and enjoy the music.

If you are after something a bit more family-friendly, head along to Pippin.

A troop from Reel Eire School of Irish Dance will be bringing the traditional jig, with all its high kicks and foot flicks, to the London Road pub.

You never know, if you have enough pints of Guinness, you might join in.

The school runs classes in Maidstone, Medway, Ashford and Sittingbourne for boys and girls aged three and above.

A start time is yet to be confirmed.

Old House At Home in Pudding Lane will welcome five-strong band, Pope the Catholics, formed especially for St Paddy's.

The group will play a mix of folk and rock in the heavy-beamed bar from 7.30pm Sunday until late.

A local dance group will also be performing in the pub on Saturday evening.

Bearsted's Bell Inn has decided to host two bands this year to mark the cultural and religious celebration.

On Saturday, unique folk band Footdown will kick off at 9pm and on Sunday the pub will have a more sedate, chilled vibe conjured up by Mudsticks from 4pm.

With plenty of free parking at the Ware Street inn, head here if you fancy a change from the town centre.
