"With pageantry, floats, marching bands, sports clubs and Irish dancing schools, it’s a wonderful sight," the festival organisers state.

The London St Patrick's Day Parade winds its way down Piccadilly, on a 1.5-mile (2.4km) route.

It takes in some of London’s most famous landmarks, including The Ritz, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and onto Whitehall.

The overall winner will see their banner made up to full size and carried in the parade.

Winners can also help carry the banner on the day with family and friends.

The work of the winners will be made into full sized artworks and shown in a special exhibition at City Hall from March 13-20 March.
