Town's Irish club ready to celebrate 50 years.
The St Patrick's Irish Club, in Riverside Walk, was established on the banks of the River Leam by a group of Irish families who emigrated from Ireland to England in 1963.
And tomorrow marks the start of their 50th anniversary celebrations with a performance by the Bible Code Sundays Band.
A children's day event will take place on Sunday and will see the winner announced of a competition for schoolchildren to draw or design a piece depicting the history of the club.
There will also be other entertainment including face painting and a magician.
Other events throughout the week include sporting competitions, Irish Rambling House and a celebration meal on Saturday October 19 with guests including the Irish Ambassador and the Mayor of Leamington.
The curtain will be brought down on Sunday October 20 with a parade in Leamington Spa, starting at 11am.
The Leamington and Warwick Art Gallery are also hosting a display of images from the club throughout its history to the present day. The exhibition will run for four weeks.
