Having to go back to work on Tuesday after a four day weekend was hard, but at least it means there’s only four days to work this week – so why not start planning your weekend with our look at some unique events this weekend.
If you like being scared and are a fan of Derek Acorah and his ghost-hunting shows, why not try a bit of your own ghost hunting at Strelley Hall in Nottingham. From 9pm on Friday 10th April until approximately 2.30 the next morning be prepared to be scared and fascinated as you look for evidence in this extremely haunted house. Tickets are available in advance – don’t forget to wrap up warm and bring your cameras!
If you’re a fan of Roald Dahl, and let’s face it, who isn’t, opened on Tuesday this week is the much anticipated theatre adaptation of The Twits at the Royal Court. Only running until 31 May this is an opportunity to see some of Dahl’s most revolting and hilarious characters come to life. We can’t wait to see what they do to Mr Twit’s beard.
As Spring has finally sprung there are now lots of outdoor and sporting events happening all over the country which you can either spectate at or get involved in. The annual Oxford and Cambridge boat race is happening on Saturday on the Thames, a great free event to watch, (assuming you can get a space by the river). However, running for a few years now is the Goat Race at Spitalfields City Farm. Tickets need to be booked for this as the elite athletes can’t cope with too much of a crowd.
Truck racing is taking place all weekend at Brands Hatch with the start of the British Truck Racing Championship and five truck races. With lots of off track entertainment planned for all the family this promises to be a memorable and different day out. As well as the truck races there are 2CV and Caterham races so no opportunity to get bored!
If you want to visit the coast and watch some serious fundraising, the Brighton Marathon is taking place on Sunday. Now in it’s sixth year this is becoming one of the South Coast’s major sporting events. The organisation is excellent and combined with Brighton’s fabulous ability to throw a good party promises to be a great day out, even if you’re not taking part.
