What to do this Easter

We’ve split out what to do this bank holiday weekend by day, so you can add this guide to favourites and keep checking back.

Thursday 29th March


What: London’s Big Read

Where: Library, Covent Garden

Launching on the 1st March (also World Book Day, if you didn’t get the memo), members club LIBRARY have opened their doors to the public with a series of events and readings, with Thursday being your last opportunity. Paterson Joseph, author of Julius Ceasar and Me and RSC actor, will be in conversation and signing copies from 7pm. Plus, indulge in thirsty Thursday with a complimentary cocktail from BIMBER.

What: Baltic Market

Where: Cains Brewery

Open until 11pm, start your Easter weekend the right way at Independent Liverpool’s food market. If you can, try the Hafla Hafla halloumi fries and take home a treat from the Midnight Bakery.

Friday 30th March


What: Pay As You Feel Market

Where: Bean Shed, Hoxton

Where else can you simultaneously make positive changes to the environment and get locally grown produce for dinner? Satiate your hunger and help stop food ending in landfill in Hoxton. Plus our favourite Ozone coffee roasters from Leonard Street are on hand to keep you warm if the weather takes a turn.

Further Information


What: Spa at the Gilpin

Where: Windermere, Cumbria

Looking for luxury? We’ve found it. Head to the Lakes to discover the Gilpin Hotel’s brand new makeover, replete with outdoor sauna and hydrotherapy hot tub. Patchy signal, definitely worth it.

Further Information


What: Manchester Duck Race

Where: Spinningfields

Hands down the most bizarre annual event in Manchester, but one of our favourites all the same. Head down to Spinningfields by Menagerie to see rubber ducks unleashed onto the river Irwell, all in the name of charity Brainwave.

Further Information

Saturday 31st March


What: Horniman Easter Fair

Where: Horniman House & Gardens, Forest Hill

Looking for a location with everything to entertain the entire family? We’ve found the event that will have a little something for everyone. From an Easter egg hunt (probably meant for the children, but we’ll love too) to an arts and crafts market, this is the perfect way to while away a weekend.

Further Information


What: lululemon yoga class with Sarah Jackson

Where: lululemon, St Ann’s Square

Add a little om to your Easter weekend with lululemon’s complimentary yoga class. Easter eggs post-class 100% mandatory.

Further Information


What: Belgrave Sweet Feast

Where: Belgrave Music Hall

These are a few of our favourite things. Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen is hosting three floors of food, drink, art and music, plus it’s completely children and dog friendly.

Further Information

Sunday 1st April


What: Sunday Roast

Where: Forge Bakehouse

As Forge turns five, celebrate with a hearty British Sunday roast dinner. Plus, book in for their next supper club, which will feature exclusively vegan food.

What: Maker’s Market

Where: Lowry Outlet, MediaCityUK

The Maker’s Market has made room in its diary for the whole four days at Media City. Head along to see your favourites (hopefully scandi-inspired accessories brand Nordic Muse pictured above will be there) and try local wares.

Monday 2nd April


Glorious sunshine makes for a stunning winter day, good morning!

All that weekend getting a little too much? Take a break and head to ESPA at Corinthia Hotel, a stone’s throw from Charing Cross station. With plenty of day spa options, the only stress will be deciding which treatment to select.
