Katie Sheppard’s Top 10 Free Activities For The Bank Holiday
1. Try MatchAffinity’s free weekend
A massive 63% of people are prioritizing their search for love more now than they did 12 months ago. So if you’re looking for a special someone to start a lasting relationship with, the Free Weekend on matchaffinity.com is the perfect opportunity! Simply sign up with the MatchAffinity dating service, fill in our affinity personality test and we will deliver compatible matches direct to your inbox. It’s completely free all weekend so you can contact as many of your compatible matches as you like.
2. Visit a Museum or art gallery
Museums are a great day out. There’s always something new and exciting to see. And they’re not just for the culture vultures of this world. There are many museums across the country with free exhibitions on. Why not visit The Manchester Museum, The Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery and The Coventry Transport Museum
A trip to a museum is a great way to find out more about each other. Connecting in front of great pieces of art is a wonderful, easy, way to discover what makes the other person tick.
3. Hold a themed evening
Hold a ‘themed‘evening from the comfort of your own home. Get the girls over and rustle up some nibbles from the cupboard and watch old movies all night. Audrey Hepburn could be a good theme.
4. Have a picnic
Have a picnic in an interesting place - your car, the playground, a local lido or the beach at dawn. The options are endless. Grab whatever food you have at home, a blanket and set off.
5. Free tours
Grab free stuff by visiting local places that offer free tours with fun gifts like a local winery that gives tasters, or a dairy that lets you eat loads of cheese. Or wander down to the local allotments and offer some help. Gardeners will often reward your hard work with a bagful of veg . You’ll get a free workout and a tan too!
6. Put your artistic hat on
Gather together old photos and get crafty. Use the pictures to make thoughtful, personal birthday cards for friends, or collages for your bedroom wall, or placemats for your kids’ dinner table.
7. Explore your neighborhoods
Visit local places you always wanted to go to but never got a chance to! England is draped in history and everywhere you look there is something to explore.
8. Visit a festival
Go to a festival such as the Nottingham Arboretum Festival or the Green Festival which lasts all weekend and is completely free to get into! There will be live music including rock, funk and many DJ’s so you can let you hair down.
9. Visit the countryside
What better place to spend the weekend than in the country. Websites such as englishcountrywalks.com and walkingenglishman.com are fantastic for suggesting walks across the country. From Sunday strollers to the experienced explorers there are walks for everyone. Walking is a great way to interact with people, be it someone you are meeting for the first time, with family or your loved one.
10. Hold a book swap
Hold a ‘bring-and-swap’ book day where you offload your well thumbed chick lit novels and net a brand new stash of trash in exchange. You can also have a good gossip about which characters you would love to be.
