Bank Holiday Weekend


As it’s Bank Holiday Weekend, some of you may still need to make plans to get most of it. Have you booked all the viewings you could and see all the houses you wanted to? We are sure there is still time to do so. If you spend your weekend in Worcestershire or Gloucestershire, here are just a few options you may wish to consider. What is on then? Both counties have plenty to offer. We have picked six events you should get excited about.

 

Things to do in Worcestershire

Mello Festival  –  Friday 26th to Sunday 28th May

It’s called the biggest chilled festival and this is the biggest event in Worcestershire you can go to this Bank Holiday weekend. Three days of music celebrations, food and drink. What else do you need? Perfect family venue and chilled atmosphere.

Prices:   £45 adult weekender with no camping. Children under 12 enjoy for free and there is a discount for teenagers.

Malvern Walking Festival  –  Saturday 27th May to Sunday 4th June

The event was designed for all age groups and offers different walking routes from 2 to over 10 miles a day.

Price:   £4 per person, per walk

Pershore Carnival  –  Monday 29th May

To finish Spring Bank Holiday Weekend Pershore invites you to the carnival. This year theme is “World of music” and it looks fabulous. Loads to do for all age groups. There is a Fun Fair, Dog Show and Baking Competition. Everything starts at 10 am but if you are into samba, the procession starts at 1pm from the Pershore Football Club.

Price:   FREE, but you will have an opportunity to donate and support local businesses. The Carnival wouldn’t be there without them!

Location:   Pershore Abbey, 36 Church Street, Pershore WR10 1DT

Things to do in Gloucestershire

Gloucester Tall Ships Festival  –  Saturday 27th to Monday 29th May

Now, this is BIG! Again we have picked the biggest festival in the county for you not to miss it. If you like ships, big ships to be precise, always dreamed of being a pirate or perhaps your kids are dreaming about it now, you have to visit Gloucester this weekend. It is a very easy commute, just off M5 motorway and you can stop at famous Gloucester Services to top up your fridge on the way back.

Price:   £7 per adult for All Access Pass (well worth it: full weekend, access to the ships and museums) or £3 per adult for Day Pass. Children under the age of 12 enjoy free entry.

Location:   The Docks, Gloucester, GL1 2ER

Annual Woolsack Races in Tetbury  –  Monday 29th May

Next two proposals we have are unique annual British events you just cannot miss. Tetbury is holding it’s annual woolsack race. This is obviously about strong people racing with the woolsack on their shoulders. However, if you are not into running 240 yards with a 60lb sack of wool the town will be celebrating with a street fair with other entertainment, food and drinks available.

Price:   Free

Location:   Market Place, Tetbury, GL8 8DD

Annual Cheese Rolling – midday Monday 29th May

If you think rugby is tough try to catch the cheese… We perhaps should add that you need to catch it while it’s being rolled down the hill. Not easy! Great unique competition and great entertainment.

Price:   Free

Location:   Cooper’s Hill, Gloucester, GL3 4SB

Website:   www.cheese-rolling.co.uk
