Things to Do This Weekend (1st – 3rd February 2019)
Last updated on February 6th, 2019 at 12:20 pm
Every week we’ll be giving Joes the best things to do this weekend no matter where you are in the country. Whether it’s the best new bars, clubs, restaurants, films or events, we’ve got you covered!
Things to Do This Weekend in London
Super Bowl LIII Party
Sunday 3rd February. Prices vary.
The Super Bowl takes places this weekend as the Los Angeles Rams take on the New England Patriots (yes, them again) at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. The Super Bowl is always a bit of an event with us here at Joes and we know we’re not the only ones who struggle to stay awake as they tuck into their fifth hot dog while pretending they know what ‘Shotgun Formation’ means!
The game may kicks off at 11:30pm and staying up until 4am can be a bit of slog unless you’ve done some tactical sleep pattern planning. So we say get out of the house and go hit one of London’s many venues that will be hosting parties for the event. The atmosphere alone will be enough to see you through until sunlight!
Alan Partridge Bingo
Sunday 3rd February. £5.50.
Ever wanted to play a game of Bingo where the numbers were swapped for quotes and characters from Alan Partridge? Of course you have. Well, Hackney’s much loved Moth Club will be doing exactly that this Sunday!
Alongside the bingo inspired by your very favourite North Norfolk Digital radio presenter, there’ll also be interactive games, prizes and booze to keep you occupied. Tickets are £5.50 (inc. booking fee) for entry, then £1 per game once you’re in. Back of the net.
Location: Moth Club, Old Trades Hall, Valette Street, E9 6NU. Nearest Station: Hackney Central.
Things to Do This Weekend in Bristol
Record and CD Fair
Sunday 3rd February. Free.
This Sunday, the South West’s biggest record fair once again returns to Bristol’s Colston Hall. Spread over three floors of the foyer, there’ll be up to seventy dealers and traders from all over the South, with buyers from as far-afield as Japan, Russia and Poland.
The fair will feature mostly vinyl, (LP, 12” and 7”), with a few CD traders thrown in for good like. You’ll find everything in the hall from £1 bargains to expensive rarities. Decks will also be available on the day so you can check out tunes before you buy. The cafe/bar will also be fully stocked should you need a break from browsing.
Location: Colston Hall, Colston Street, BS1 5AR.
Things to Do This Weekend in Manchester
TEDx Manchester 2019
Sunday 3rd December. From £10.
With over 1.2 billion views, it’s statistically fairly likely that you’ve watched a TED Talk on YouTube at least once in your lifetime. If you have watched a TED talk, you’ll also know they hit the road regularly, and this Sunday they’re heading to Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall.
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is the headline talker as she discusses her young artists’ social app ‘Daisie’. There’ll also be talks from Rory Sutherland, Vice-Chair of Ogilvy UK, Astronomy photographer Jon Carmichael, and Unilad co-founder Alex Partridge. If you can’t get on the list to be there live, the Livecast Lounge will be streaming it next door.
Location: The Bridgewater Hall, Lower Mosley Street, M2 3WS.
Things to Do This Weekend in Birmingham
Daily until 1am. £10 per person.
With the weather making grim reading, your best bet for a round of 18 this weekend is probably at an indoor crazy golf venue. And one of the country’s best courses is located at the Custard Factory in Birmingham. Ghetto Golf is a cocktail bar with a difference, packing 18 holes of fluorescent mini golf.
The course is decorated by street art from over 130 of the leading street artists inspired by local Brummie landmarks, retro gaming, Blockbuster video, and even serial killers. If you get hungry, Slim’s Pork Chop Express also serve their delicious signature slow cooked BBQ meats right next to the cocktail bar.
Location: The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, B9 4AA.
