Life is meant for living and with so many unique events throughout the UK every year there is something for everyone. These are some of the most interesting events happening in the UK this month and a fantastic reason to get up from your sofa and explore your own neighborhood.
Dorset Beer Festival
Beer – there for both the good and bad moments in life, most festivals include it but the Dorset Beer Festival sets out to celebrate it.
Bristol’s Chocolate Festival
One of the most drool-worthy festivals in Bristol returns sweeter than ever – the Chocolate Festival.
Harlem Globetrotters in Wembley Arena
Sportsmanship combined with showmanship – the Harlem Globetrotters arrive at the Wembley Arena this April to strut their stuff.
Cornwall’s St Agnes ‘Outsid’er Festival
The St Agnes Festival is ideal for enjoying nature in addition to getting away from the hustle and bustle of daily life without flying out of the UK.
London’s Virgin Marathon
Running with Scooby-Doo and having each bead of sweat turn into a donation for your chosen charity, the London Virgin Money Marathon is back and a great chance to do some good while staying fit.
London International Ska Festival 2014
Ska: an upbeat music genre originally from Jamaica is set to have its 26th Music Festival in London this April.
The Queen’s Birthday – Central London
There are few things more British then the monarchy and celebrating the Queen’s birthday through a gun salute on April is as stereo-typically English as it can get.
The London Original Print Fair in Piccadilly
From 18th-19th century painters such as Hogarth and Sickert to contemporary artists Hockney and Hirst, the Print Fair promises to show off all eras of premier art while browsing, buying and engaging with favorite artists.
Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday in Stratford Upon Avon
To go or not to go, that is the question? If Shakespeare changed your life, as he has done for many others, April is the best time to go celebrate it.
