This advance warning will be of interest to all residents living in roads close to the London Irish Hazelwood grounds off Green Street.
The 2017 London Irish Mini Festival, one of the biggest in Europe, will fall on St. George’s Day, 23rd April. Despite the best efforts of organisers to prevent inconvenience to local residents, there is little they can do about visiting parents and supporters who choose to disregard the travel and parking arrangements provided by London Irish Amateur RFC. Blocked streets and driveways are a real likelihood.
The busiest time for traffic will be 8am to 10.30am, peaking between 9 - 10am as teams arrive for a 10.am start. The event has a staggered finish from approximately 2pm (age group dependent), with the last games finishing about 4pm.
