Speak pirate at the Bristol Harbour Festival

See a barrage of colour and commotion as tall ships, working boats, pirates and even a cardboard boat race take to the waters for this free annual festival celebrating all things nautical.

Get a taste for brass in Durham

Open your mind and ears to the wonderful world of BRASS. One of Durham’s most popular summer festivals sees every type of brass music from traditional toots to funky fanfares, fill the streets of Durham’s city centre. 

Face your fears at Eastbourne Extreme

Gasp, gawp and occasionally shield your eyes as you witness dare devil stunts on land, sea and in the air, and if you’re brave enough, jump from the FreeDrop Tower and fall 5m safely on to TheAirBag below.

Glow sticks ready for the family-friendly Chagstock Festival

Just the ticket for first-time festivalgoers, Chagstock is a small but perfectly formed musical haven with glorious views over the northern edge of Dartmoor. Headliners include New Model Army and Levellers.

Take your seat for The British Open Wheelchair Tennis Championships

See one of only six Super Series events on the international UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour. Taking place at the Nottingham Tennis Centre, this sporting event, which is just one level below Grand Slam, regularly attracts the world’s best players.
