New to the scene, Leeds Indie Food Festival showcases the city’s booming indie food and drink scene with a wide range of events held in independent restaurants, bars, cinemas, art galleries and breweries until May 24. There’ll also be pop-up events where you can pick up tips from those in the know, cheer on your favourite kitchen in a burger slam and learn your IPAs from your Imperial Stouts.
Revel in the glamour of the 1930s at Eltham Palace near Greenwich and browse vintage stalls aplenty at the stately home’s first ever Art Deco Fair. While you’re here, be sure to take some time to admire five newly-restored art deco rooms, including a luxury wartime bomb shelter complete with bar and sound system, a basement billiard room and a luxurious walk-in wardrobe and gold tiled bathroom.
White Post Farm’s Big Farming Weekend is like a Glasto, but with sheep, cows and other farmyard favourites. Located in the Nottinghamshire countryside, highlights include the bird of prey demos, appearances from the Gruffalo himself and the BAA-rmy sheep races.
Ease yourself into adrenalin-pumping adventures at the annual Keswick Mountain Festival in the Lake District. Try guided stargazing hikes, strap up for family abseiling, and savour wild cooking in the woods – something special guest Ray Mears will no doubt talk about when he takes to the stage!
