15 Wicked Ways To Enjoy The Spring Bank Holiday

bank holiday

May royally spoils us with two bank holidays – here are a boatload of excellent ways to celebrate the Spring bank holiday.

Right you lot, it’s the last bank holiday until August, so you better make the best of it. Just in time, the charming crew at Fever have got some ideas for you…

1. Jam on down to Jam on Rye Festival

Exciting times for plucky Peckham, as this brand new festival arrives. A whole host of reggae, afrobeat, and jazz acts will be rocking the Rye, and KERB have organised a whole host of street food friends to come along for the day. Read all about it, and then pick up a ticket.

2. Zoom down the Zip Now zipwire

bank holiday

We’ve taken a cheeky trip down the wires, and can confirm that it’s a whole heap of fun. If you want to soar through the skies above Waterloo whilst hitting speeds of 50 kilometres per hour, then this is the adrenaline rush for you. And in an exclusive for Fever users, your journey finishes with a free ride on the Megadrop! Pluck up your courage before you invest in a ticket for this one.

3. Go for glory at this Star Wars Quiz

May the force (and the luck) be with you for this one. Aside from the obvious glory of winning and being crowned Jedi Master, there are prizes for the medal positions, and for the best dressed. Oh yes, there’s a fancy dress element to this one. Join the Resistance by nabbing a ticket here.

4. Head out to Hogsozzle Music Festival

bank holiday

For a jaunt outside of London, head to Stevenage for this wonderfully wacky festival. 130 acts will play across four days, and you’ll no doubt get swept up in the dramatically colourful paint fight that’s set to break out. Plus, there’s a free hog roast to be had, and Fever tickets are 20% cheaper than normal. So many reasons to grab your tickets now.

5. Enjoy a Mozart Requiem by Candlelight

bank holiday

The beautiful venue of St Martin-in-the-Fields is the perfect atmosphere for a candlelit concert. And when the talented St Martin’s Voices are on the bill, you can expect a top-notch show. They’ll be joined by the Brandenburg Sinfonia and conductor Andrew Earis for a programme of Mozart’s best. Get your tickets here.

6. Join a scavenger hunt across London

bank holiday

Make this bank holiday a competitive one by competing in BucketRace. You’ll be given a bucket list of things to do, see, or wear around London, with a bottle of champagne presented to the winners. It’ll start low-key, for sure, but we all know your competitive instincts are going to kick in pretty swiftly. Get your hands on tickets here.

7. Feel the party vibes at the East London Summer Party

bank holiday

PITCH Stratford is already one of London’s top summer pop-ups, and this is only going to make it better. Join the party for street food, bars, live music, and just all-round good vibes. Your ticket to this party is available here.

8. Dive into bottom tapas and prosecco

bank holiday

A fiesta and a half, is this one. The Mexican Bottomless Brunch brings the likes of nachos, tacos, patatas bravas, and other delicious treats to your table. Add two hours of bottomless prosecco into the mix, and your bank holiday becomes a rather indulgent affair. Get your tickets here.

9. Throw out some shapes at fabric

bank holiday

If you’ve never been to one of London’s most famous clubs, then it’s high time to change that. fabric are partying all through the bank holiday weekend, and Sunday sees the likes of Heartless Crew, DJ Luck & MC Neat spinning the decks. Clubbing on a Sunday? You won’t get the chance to do it every week, so pick up a ticket today.

10. Feel naughty at Forbidden Nights Sexy Male Circus

bank holiday

It’s billed as a “spectacle of desire, passion and excitement”. That really doesn’t quite do justice to what is certain to be a steamy affair with an element of danger. Yes, they are acrobats, firebreathers, and top circus performers – but they’re also shirtless and rather good-looking. Oh, and you get to meet them afterwards too. Run, don’t walk, to get your tickets here.

11. Sip wine whilst enjoying some fine literature

bank holiday

One for the cultured types out here, this experience literature and drinking. (Already a win in our books.) A hopefully exhaustive search will lead you to the perfect wine to drink with Amy Bloom’s new book, White Houses. All in the charming surrounds of the British Library, too. Get your tickets here.

12. Magic up some delicious cocktails at The Cauldron

bank holiday

Drinking has never been quite this magical. Join a potions class with a gintastic twist, as your drinks appear, change colour, and smoke with only a swish of your fully interactive wand! If you’ve ever wished to wave a wand and make drinks appear, this is definitely one you’ll want to check out. Do yourself a solid and pick up a ticket here.

13. Swing along to The Gatsby Brunch

bank holiday

The roaring twenties are back in style at Proud Embankment! The Gatsby Brunch features three courses and bottomless cocktails, and swing dancing for when you’re all good and liquored up. Read all about it, and then pick up a ticket.

14. Belt out the hits at a Mamma Mia Musical Sing-A-Long

bank holiday

Mamma mia, here I go again, writing about another top bank holiday event. You’ll need to warm up your pipes for this one, as singing along is very much welcomed. Expect ABBA’s biggest hits to be honoured/murdered depending on the crowd’s ability, and platters of party food will make their way around the bash. Grab your tickets now!

15. Salute the flag at a very British cabaret night

bank holiday

Every corner of the UK is represented at this exclusive cabaret event. Expect to see Scottish drummers, Irish dancers, Welsh singers and dancing soldiers fill the glamorous London Cabaret Club, whilst you enjoy a range of British tapas. Tickets are available here.

Be sure to check out more of Fever‘s top plans, for everything from archery to the zoo.
