From late night-openings to ballroom dancing and wine tastings...
park your imagination and plan a night out with a difference rather than sticking to the usual dinner and drinks. Summer or winter, indoors or out, England has plenty to entertain.
Art enthusiasts can get the weekend off to a cultural start with Late at the Tate on the first Friday of the month at Tate Britain, or Late at the Royal Academy of Arts , open until 10pm every Friday.
Many cities around England take part, with markets and mulled wine on offer too. Keen to try ballroom dancing? 3D cinema? Want to scare yourself silly?Take your pick from our top 10.
Some nights out – like a trip on the London Eye – take a bit of planning. Good options as a big group include a pampering evening or a trip to Wimbledon Dogs .
