Fab Events to Hit Up This Bank Holiday

Don’t be the sad sod who lies in bed all long weekend just because your housemates have gone out of town. 

Gather the rest of your crew, the August bank holiday is full of awesome events around the country that keep you so busy that you’ll be all, “what housemates?!”.

LONDON: NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL

notting-hill-carnival

Get cash out beforehand, you don’t want to deal with cash point queues. Notting Hill Carnival, or just plain ‘Carnival’ as the locals know it, is an event you’ve got to experience at least once in your life – it is Europe’s biggest street festival, ya know. Expect flamboyant costumes, lots of twerking, and to get lots of glitter in your hair (where it will remain for a good three days, minimum). Do eat the Caribbean corn on the cob, and obviously the jerk chicken. Obviously! And guess what, we have your Carnival outfit sorted!

BRIGHTON: OUTDOOR FILM FESTIVAL

Bloc Party had the right idea when they said, “Let’s go to Brighton for the weekend”. Pack your picnic, head to the beach to soak up the sun, then when you’re done head to the fancy pants grounds of gorgeous Preston Park for an outdoor movie night run by Picturehouse

KENT: ICE CREAM FESTIVAL

Uhhh, did someone say ice cream? Ditch the diet and unleash your inner Heston to create your own frozen masterpiece at the toppings bar at Kent’s first ever Ice Cream Festival . And then, once you’re back then it’s back to ‘gym + diet’ and these healthy fruity snacks.
