What's On This Weekend

I have been doing a weekly what's on guide for a while now and it always proves popular with our readers. I have now decided to turn it into a weekly blog post, so it is easier for you to find and come back to when stuck for ideas.

The weather has been really unpredictable the last few weeks so I would just advise checking the weather on the day of your travel. I have checked the weather on the MET site and this weekend is looking dry both days with Saturday being the better day.

You can find some ideas HERE for indoor ideas if the weather is awful but you still fancy going out.
