It’s probably safe to assume that, wherever you are, no one’s managed go two sentences before mentioning the long weekend. That’s right, 4 days off! But have you ever notice that people hesitate when you ask them what they’ve got planned, and even then the response is usually “eating chocolate”. So what to do in the three days you’re not feeling sick? Look no further because we’ve got you covered with a list that Keith Richards, himself, would be proud of…

1Café de Paris

Host of the UK’s number one, event industry awards night, The COOL Venue Awards; Café de Paris is keeping its trademark mix of cabaret and macabre burning (pun intended) with their famous Seven Sins show this Friday. Featuring Reuben Kaye as your guide through the seven deadly sins, this spectacle will bring a tightly wound mix of burlesque, wit, and circus acts from some Europe’s most sort after performers – and if there’s anything Café de Paris does better than everyone else, it’s the spectacle.

2Backyard Cinema

Arguably Quentin Tarantino’s most famous film, Pulp Fiction is one of those films that everyone has an opinion about (everyone except for Marvin, that is) and as part of their “Last Chapel” season of films, Backyard Cinema is having a special screening of Pulp Fiction. Sitting comfortably in a line-up of films that blur the line between hero and villain, the immersive experience of Jules and Vincent’s outings isn’t to be missed.

3Dirty Harry’s

So from our experience, long weekends tend to go one of two ways – you take the extra time away from work to relax or you remember that a hangover will have plenty of time to wear off. Whatever scenario you go for, Dirty Harry’s is definitely where you want to be. Weekend passes (that grant entry and a drink for 4 nights) are available for £20 and live performances from bands and the Rock n Roll Bunnies (better known as Harry’s Honeys), as well as amazing street food and fantastic Easter-themed drinks packages.
