What's On: August Bank Holiday Weekend

What's On: August Bank Holiday Weekend

It feels like only yesterday that we were talking about having three bank holiday weekends in the space of one month back in May, but here we are with arguably the most exciting one of the entire year.

More than just a three-day weekend, the August Bank Holiday is the pinnacle of summer! From the legendary Notting Hill Carnival and the afterparties that come with it, the rare treat of a guilt-free Sunday night out, day parties, BBQs, food & drink festivals and more, it's one of the biggest, most fun-filled weekends of the year!

Here's just selection of our favourite events taking place across the country this weekend. You can find tickets for all of these and many, many more on FIXR.
