St Patrick's Day has become a global phenomenon, with people all around the world celebrating it. It serves as a unifying force in Ireland and let's be honest, it's a good laugh.
I therefore feel it is regrettable that St George's Day does not have even close to the same status as a celebration. Not only is it an essential part of English identity, but it is also a great opportunity to show off English culture to any international students studying at UWE.
It will cost the SU basically nothing to implement and it just seems like a cultural event that is worth recognizing.
