The London Irish Centre (LIC) has been a home for Irish community, culture and identity since its establishment in 1954.
Through the decades, music, dance and celebration have been a key part of the LIC’s role in caring for the Irish in London, with everyone from The Pogues to Terry Wogan getting involved.
Having recently invested in developing its Arts & Culture activities, in response to growing interest from London audiences, the LIC is now one of the leading Irish Arts organisations outside of Ireland.
We run a fast-growing programme which promotes both contemporary and traditional Irish Arts & Culture. We aim to celebrate the vibrant Irish cultural scene in London, as well as offer high quality performance opportunities to artists from Ireland.
Through partnership with organisations and individuals both in Britain and Ireland, we run events and activities at our home in Camden Square and in leading venues across London.
All of our events aim to represent Ireland and Irish creativity in a positive, professional and creative light.
Recent performers have included Martin Hayes, Damien Dempsey, Liam O’Maonlaí, Altan and many more.
Our Arts & Culture team work in three main areas:
Arts & Culture: Concerts, festivals, film screenings, exhibitions, comedy, theatre.
Learning: Opportunities to learn Irish dance, music, language, history and more.
Community: Meet-ups, dinners, sports-screenings, our GAA club, networking, parties.
