Easter as a kid was great, wasn’t it? Your parents got a few more days off work to take you on Easter egg hunts, sometimes there was face painting, and all sorts of fun, maybe a trip to church, almost certainly a roast dinner or a family meal.
But what’s on in London this long weekend if you don’t have kids (and want to spend time around them) but you still want to celebrate the glorious weather and the last weekend before term? From ping-pong to cider to kilo shopping to outdoor music, find something for you this weekend.
Club nights everywhere are hosting their ‘Easter-eggstravaganzas’ (or similar witty titles) but tonight there is a gin & vodka tasting event at Climpson’s Arch in Hackney – and there’s also a BBQ. What better way to enjoy the weather? This kicks off their weekend events that also include DJs and brunch.
If you aren’t a fan of the strong stuff but still fancy drinking in the sun then check out the cider festival at Crate Brewery in Hackney Wick (also boasting a BBQ) all day on Saturday & Sunday.
Berwick Street Record Store Day on Saturday offers a free outdoor gig with appearances from Cass Art, Jerusalem Falafel and Pizza Pilgrims.
