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
Scandinavian Spring Market
Saturday 19th March. Free.
We love our London food markets and it’s the turn of Scandinavia to show us what they’ve got this weekend with the Scandinavia Spring Market in Rotherhithe. The charming pavements of Albion Street will be taken over this Saturday by all things Nordic.
The stretch between the Finnish and Norwegian churches will be filled with a load of stalls selling food, crafts and toys. There’ll be music throughout the day and there’ll even be a life-size Moomin on duty for the kids or your less mature fellow Joe. Our tip: make sure you try mämmi (a traditional Finnish Easter dessert) – delicious!
Location: Albion Street, SE16 7JB. Nearest Overground: Rotherhithe.
Sunday 20th March. Free.
A modern take on the traditional treasure hunt, Search Party leads groups of adults around London in search of a secret party at an undisclosed location. Along the way, you’ll immerse yourself in a trail which will lead you through hidden gardens, secret squares and back streets in the capital.
You’ll receive clues along the way which let you know where the party is located. But be careful; some of the clues are aimed to mislead rather than inform… You’ve got three hours to find the party where you’ll find all the food, music and dancing you could hope for!
Things to Do This Weekend in Manchester
Rebuilding Manchester Installation
Friday 18th-Sunday 20th March. Free.
If you’re out and about in Manchester City Centre this weekend, give yourself an hour and check out Rebuilding Manchester, a massive graffiti installation at the Renaissance Hotel right by the River Irwell.
Made by artist Richard Cowley, the gigantic graffiti-inspired photo collage spans approx. 240 square metres and uses thousands of images of Manchester. This installation has been entered for a possible world record and turns photo collaging into a 3D space you can walk around experiencing a new perspective on the city.
Location: Renaissance Hotel, Blackfriars St, M3 2EQ.
Things to Do This Weekend in Bristol
Drink at Zerodegrees
We love Zerodegrees Bristol. The microbrewery/restaurant opened in 2004 and has been going strong ever since thanks to its great beer and impressive setting. Boasting no less than three balconies, Zerodegrees features a ton of exposed metal and a main bar with serious grandeur thanks to its high ceiling.
While this place does put a lot of its emphasis on its dining experience – which is great – for us it’s all about the beer, which is brewed on-site on the first-floor. There’s everything on the beer menu you could wish for with a wheat lager, an award-winning Pilsner and even a seasonal Mango Beer in the summer.
Location: 53 Colston Street, BS1 5BA.
Things to Do This Weekend in Leeds
Fridays and Saturdays, 10pm-6am.
If you need to let loose this weekend, Leeds’ Beaver Works is one of the best venues in the city. Set in a converted Victorian bed factory, this 4 room gaff puts on some of the best underground parties the North has to offer.
Beaver Works is one of only a few venues in the UK to be fitted with Infra sub bass bins, which means this system drops! There’s different nights going on every weekend crossing all genres so check before you head out but drinks are always very cheap.
Location: 36 Whitehouse Street, LS10 1AD.
