Hundreds of guests gather to celebrate St Patrick’s Day as part of the Shamrock Ball 2015.
The ball raised money for the Sick Children’s Trust and the PSPA and was hosted by the North East-based Lionra, the British and Irish business network.
Guests were treated to music from Newcastle “balkanistic” dance band The Bagdaddhies and comedy from North East entertainer Brendan Healy.
This year’s event was held at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead and drew over 300 guests from business and community groups.
Next year’s Ball has been scheduled for March 19.
