Rejoice! The sun has started to come out! The flip-flops and pasty legs are already appearing, and we haven’t even hit 20 degrees yet! Here at trainline towers, we thought we would give you the low down on some of the coolest things to do this spring time. You can thank us later.
1. Boating or Goating?
Yes, it’s that time again for the Boat Race! Head down to Putney and watch the Oxford and Cambridge teams row for glory. Alternatively, goats running for glory in East London will also suffice. Bring on the Prosecco!
2. Udderly Brilliant
The big purple cow is back for its 6th year at London’s South Bank Centre. Watch your favourite comedians, some new faces and loads of other awesome performances. Moooooo-arvellous!
Udderbelly: Thursday 10 April 2014 – Sunday 13 July 2014: South Bank Centre
3. Medieval Mayhem
Got little ones to entertain this spring? Nothing keeps kids interested like a court jester and some good old historical gore! Popular series ‘Horrible Histories’ is pitching up at Warwick Castle throughout the spring. Something brilliant for the kids (and the big kids).
Medieval Mayhem: Warwick Castle, Warwick
28th March – 12th April
2nd May – 4th May
23rd May – 31st May
18th July – 6th September
4. Meat and musical madness in Manchester
Europe’s largest BBQ and music festival returns to Manchester next month! Expect mouth-watering meat, two music stages with bands and DJ’s and competitive eating competitions! Hot Wing Challenge, anyone?
Grillstock Festival: Albert Square, Manchester 30th-31st of May
5. Deep Sea Diving
Head down to London’s Natural History Museum and discover ‘Secret Cities of the Sea’. An awe-inspiring exhibition on coral reefs. A great day out for all ages! (Snorkel and flippers not required)
Coral Reefs, Secret Cities of the Sea: Natural History Museum, until Sunday 13th September
6. Big Bugs!
Perhaps this isn’t one for the Entomophobes out there.
For the next 6 months, 13 huge animatronic bugs are making Bristol Zoo Gardens their home. It’s great fun for all the family, but don’t get too close. They move, hiss and even spray water.
