Things to Do This Weekend (1st – 3rd March 2019)
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
SEA LIFE London Aquarium Silent Disco
Friday 1st March 2019. £29.
You may not have been to a SEA LIFE centre in years. But this Friday the London Aquarium is once again opening their doors after hours for one of their famed silent discos. Guests will don a pair of glowing headphones and tune into one of three channels as they immerse themselves in the world of water.
Upon arrival, you’ll get a welcome glass of prosecco before acquainting yourself with the sharks, rays and jellyfish that reside in the Aquarium. Stride across the glass walkway with sharks swimming inches beneath your feet, and explore the Atlantic Cove area and their Pacific Wreck display where you can enjoy a drink at the bar.
Location: SEA LIFE London Aquarium, County Hall, Riverside Building, Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7PB. Nearest Tube: Waterloo or Westminster.
Time Out 50 Exhibition
Until Sunday 3rd March 2019. £9.
Believe it or not, Time Out magazine turns 50 this year, and to mark the occasion, the Museum of Brands is hosting an exhibition this weekend featuring 50 original magazine covers from Time Out’s archive. Curated by Time Out editors, the covers reflect key moments of city life from 1968 to the present day and showcase how London has changed in half a century.
The exhibition includes the very first Time Out London issue from 12th September 1968, which features an Andy Warhol soup can design to celebrate an exclusive interview with the artist, the 1974 cover marking Winston Churchill’s 100th anniversary, and cover stars including David Bowie, Elton John and Joanna Lumley.
Location: Museum of Brands, 111-117 Lancaster Road, Lonsdale Road, W11 1QT. Nearest Tube: Ladbroke Grove.
Things to Do This Weekend in Glasgow
Glasgow Film Festival
Until Sunday 3rd March 2019. Prices vary.
Glasgow Film Festival comes to a close this weekend but there’s still plenty of chances to see some of its packed programme, including pop-up cinema screenings in unique Glasgow venues, such as Fight Club at Parkhouse and a showing of cult horror The Blair Witch Project at a secret location.
As in previous years, the fifteenth edition of the festival will also showcase new films from local and international filmmakers, spanning all genres. This year, GFF19 will be showcasing fresh new cinema from Belgium, revisiting Hollywood classics from the last year of the sixties, and also celebrating the anniversaries of two much-loved blockbusters: The Matrix and Alien.
Things to Do This Weekend in Manchester
Cloudwater Friends & Family & Beer
Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd March 2019. £60.
Manchester is no stranger to beers festivals, with one seemingly on every weekend. But this weekend it’s Manc brewing royalty Cloudwater who’ll be getting the chance to showcase what they’re all about with a beer festival rather succinctly called ‘Friends & Family & Beer’.
Taking place at Upper Campfield Market, tickets may be on the pricier side of things, but unlike most other beer fests, your ticket does includes all the beer in 50 or 100ml tasters throughout one of the 4 ½ hour sessions. Not only that, all profits will go to charities chosen by the organisers.
Location: Upper Campfield Market, Barton Street, M3 4NN.
Things to Do This Weekend in Bristol
Bristol Film Festival: Night at the Museum
Friday 1st March 2019. Adults £15.
Bristol Film Festival is returning to Bristol Museum & Art Gallery this weekend for an evening of ‘historical thrills and spills’ and screening of two of the most loved films in cinema history. The museum is staying open after hours with showings of Spielberg’s Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones’ first escapade in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The former film couldn’t be screened in a more apt setting, with the big screen set beneath the frame of Bristol Museum’s very own dinosaur. On the evening, you’ll also get to explore a selection of the Museum’s incredible exhibitions, including the ever-popular Egypt Gallery.
Location: Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Queens Road, BS8 1RL.
