Things to Do This Weekend in London
Street Feast Woolwich
Fridays 5pm – late & Sundays 12pm – late.
Since launching in 2012, Street Feast has been transforming derelict and disused spaces into unique food and drink halls up and down the capital. And they’re set to open another year-round location this weekend, this time in Woolwich.
Expect a rotating line-up of eight street food traders, as well as three bars and seating for 300. This weekend you can sample delights from the likes of Yumplings with their perfectly steamed dumplings, 90-day aged prime beef patties from Burger & Beyond, and plates of delicious cured salt beef from Salt Shed.
Location: Plumstead Road Covered Market, SE18 7BZ. Nearest Station: Woolwich Arsenal.
RA Lates: Night at the Palace
Saturday 3rd March. £40.
The Royal Academy of the Arts becomes King Charles I’s Whitehall Palace this Saturday for a night of immersive decadence. The year is 1640 and guests are invited to a spectacular masque festival at the palace where celebrations will range from poetry and music, to dance and theatre.
Become 17th-century royalty for the night and experience masques, banqueting feasts, and revelling rooms with wild courtly dancing and discover the King’s hidden private apartments. There’ll also be a marketplace with street food, wine, cocktails, and craft beer. The dress code is naturally ‘courtly decadence’.
Location: The Royal Academy of the Arts, Burlington House, W1J 0BD. Nearest Tube: Piccadilly Circus.

The Big Cheese Festival

If you love your cheese as much as we do, folk on the south coast may want to listen up. The Big Cheese Festival will be taking over the Hove Lawns on Saturday for the biggest fromage spectacle of the year. There will be over 30 stalls showcasing their finest cheeses from across the world.
Experts will be on hand for cheese and wine pairings, while homemade chutney combos will also be available to take home. In the top tent you’ll find a range of bars serving craft beers, liquor and wine, plus live comedy, local bands and guest chefs are set to take to the stage throughout the day.

ISA Rang Barse Holi Festival
Sunday 4th March. £15.
India’s most colourful festival, Holi, is set to begin this Thursday, so to celebrate, Leeds’ Beaver Works is hosting ISA Rang Barse, a celebration which will see guests covered in coloured powders as DJs spin tunes. It’s the 5th Holi celebration in Leeds and it promises to be bigger and better than ever.
The event will begin at 12pm and last until around 5pm. Organisers will provide you with free powdered colours, and there’ll be a bar on site and some mouth-watering snacks provided by Aagrah Group of Restaurants. We’d strongly recommend wearing some old clothes…

Things to Do This Weekend in Bristol
Microbrewery Tour at Croft Ales
Saturday 3rd March. £12.
Croft Ales may have only been established in late 2017 but they’ve quickly grown an excellent reputation for craft in Bristol already. And this Saturday they’re offering a sneak-peak behind the scenes of their working microbrewery, where punters can learn a thing or two about how beer is made as well as try some of the finished product.
The guided tour of the pint-sized brewery – we’re talking the size of your living room – will include a walk through of the beer-making process and a flight of beer where you’ll get to sample four different 1/2 pints of Croft Ales’ beer.
Location: Croft Ales, 32 Upper York Street, BS2 8QN.
