Things to Do This Weekend
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
Kerb is 4
Friday 14th October. £4.
For those acquainted with London’s thriving street food scene, you’ll know just how popular KERB’s numerous markets are. Well, the company who bring together the best grub the capital has to offer are turning 4 this weekend, and to celebrate their throwing a bash at their King’s Cross residence!
Entry and dishes are both £4 and there will be four free pints for every new keg opened – just to keep the theme going. Naturally there’ll be tons of food stalls with burgers, chicken and everything else in between, as well as specialist cocktails and sweet live music. Perfect for a Friday night!
Location: West Handyside Canopy, N1C 4AA. Nearest Tube: King’s Cross.
Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th October. From £22.
East London and scenesters have been going hand-in-hand since time began and there’s no better place to witness the marriage than at Hackney Wonderland, a now two-day music festival back for its third year in E8. There’s five venues getting involved for the 2016 version with the main hive of activity taking place at the Oval Space.
Joes can pick up a wristband to get entry to all of the venues and catch indie stars such as the Mystery Jets, We Are Scientists, Swim Deep, and Lucy Rose, alongside up-and-coming new bands. Naturally for Hackney, there’ll be plenty of afterpartying to get involved with too!
Things to Do This Weekend in Bristol
Until Sunday 14th October
Not many cities on the planet, let alone in the UK, have a better reputation for wildlife film and photography than Bristol. To illustrate the point, this week marks 30 years of the prestigious Wildscreen Festival, an event which celebrates and screens some of the world’s best natural world storytellers.
The festival is taking place in three different Bristolian locations which all fairly near each other; the Bordeaux Quay, the Watershed and Arnolfini. Alongside screenings of natural world documentaries, there’ll also be talks with filmmakers/conservation organisations, and exhibitions of some of the best wildlife photography you’re ever likely to see.
Things to Do This Weekend in Birmingham
Until Sunday 16th October. From £5.
Die Krüge Hoch, it’s Oktoberfest! But if you can’t make your way over to Munich, do the next best thing with a taste of Bavaria back in Brum. Birmingham Oktoberfest is back with the return of five days of eating, drinking and singing inside a giant marquee located at Cannon Hill Park.
It’s estimated that 10,000 people will be heading down to the tent this year with 24,000 litres of beer on site so you don’t go thirsty. There’ll be music throughout the day as well as all the Bratwurst and Schnitzel you can pack in. Prost!
Location: Cannon Hill Park, 2 Russell Road, B13 8RD.
Things to Do This Weekend in Manchester
Big Fish Little Fish: Family Rave
Sunday 16th October. £8 Adults, £6 Children.
Parenthood inevitably means leaving your partying days behind. But Big Fish Little Fish are looking to change that with a rave for little ones as well as their parents. This weekend sees the event hit Manchester and will features tubthumping beats – as well as bubbles – to suit everyone’s needs!
Big Fish Little Fish sees DJs sitting alongside glitter cannons on the dancefloor, and there’s even room for a giant parachute to dance along with. The craft area acts as a retreat if things get too heated while busting moves, and there’s a play area with tents, tunnels and a soft play ballpit too. There’ll also be free glow sticks on offer, as well as face painting, and yes, there is a licensed bar…
