The grass is greener, the tulips are blooming and soon enough we’ll be adjusting our clocks to go forward an hour; that’s right, spring is here and it kicks off with March! The month that boasts St. Patrick Day, Easter and a half term, March is a great turning point, so check out our favourite things to do around the UK!
North London’s Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) once again hosts their fantastic annual festival in Camden! Running from the 2nd – 4th March, the fest offers up more than 150 real ales, ciders, perries, mead and, of course, the fine lager, all from local and imported brewers. Homemade food will be on offer over the 3 days to help line your stomachs. Tickets are on the door and cost £4 or £3 for CAMRA members. Remember, if you need to get home, pre-book a cab with us and make sure you arrive home safely!
It’s Easter, so of course, you just have to visit Cadbury World! This place feels like a real life Willy Wonka factory, with cartoon areas, 4D cinema and gentle rides around the chocolate heaven. As Easter is towards the end of March, Cadbury throws a heck of an event around the time. You and the little ones can get involved in egg hunts and bonnet competitions, whilst you marvel at the expertly designed eggs available. There will be family entertainment on offer too with live magicians and ventriloquists over the Easter break! Tickets must be purchased in advance as soon as possible, as it is extremely popular around half terms!
From the 26th March, Edinburgh hosts an International Science Festival for all ages! Venture forth into a universe of science, technology, and engineering as the festival aims to explore all things scientific, with discussions, workshops, performances, exhibitions, speakers and screenings. The festival runs citywide, with a lot of bookable events. The themes will revolve around being human, our environment, science and culture, planet earth and space exploration!
Since 1996, Manchester has hosted their fantastic Irish Festival, celebrating their action-packed cultural programme and parades!
