It’s the last bank holiday of the summer, so let’s get the party started. The bank holiday weekend stretches from Saturday 26 to Monday 28 August, and there’s plenty to keep you occupied, whatever the weather. With a bit of luck, the sun might shine, in which case grab a book and head to one of our parks and gardens, or take a trip to a sculpture park or even a sunny beer garden.
There’s foodie fun to be had at Festa Italiana and Madre – and Kampus has plenty going on. If the great outdoors beckons, we’ve rounded up the best wild swimming spots, outdoor art and adventure activities for you, and we’ve found the perfect place to experience some open air theatre. Film-wise we also have you covered, and there’s plenty to see on the art front not to mention workshops to get involved with if crafts are your bag.
