02 May 2014 by

Yayyy! Friday's arrived! And this weekend isn't just any old weekend.. it's a bank holiday weekend! We've got three whole days to party hard, chill out, explore museums and enjoy the great outdoors. Not got anything planned yet? Here are five ideas for things to do. 

1. Read Shotgun Love Songs

Four childhood friends are reunited for a wedding and have to confront how they have changed. A beautiful book about friendship, music and what it means to call a place home.

2. Head to Fairground

The creators of epic London event Street Feast have taken over an abandoned building on Kingsland Road for the next few weekends, hosting workshops, foodie fun and live music. This weekend's the Field Day takeover. 

3. Walk a gorge

Kicking off on May 3, there are more than 50 free guided walks taking place at the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site in Shropshire this month as part of the area's Gorge Walking Festival.

4. Listen to Damon Albarn's new album

An incredible 20 years to the month after Blur's era-defining album Parklife came out, frontman Damon is releasing hsi first solo album, Everyday Robots. Inspired by the places of his childhood, highlights include the hauntingly beautiful 'Hollow Ponds'. Worth the wait. 

5. Go to Brighton Festival 2014

With exhibitions, performances, talks and parades talking place across Brighton from Sunday, May 3 - Brighton is the place to be for culture nerds this weekend.
