The organisers of the St Patrick's Day parade in Birmingham have agreed with the police for pubs to close their doors at 4pm today and reopen them at 6pm.
Customers can stay inside but no one else will be allowed in during that time.
This is being done to give police the chance to clear the streets to allow shoppers to make their way out of the city.
