Since Christmas and New Year’s is over, the hectic days have returned. You still remember the happy holiday trip last time? It seems the period was like a magical dream which has been overwhelmed by normal daily life. Well, the truth is in February wanderlust takes over the whole nation. There are some interesting events that are worth travelling to in the UK.
Are you a person who is fond of tasting ales? Then you do not want to miss the 15th Derby Camera Winter Ale Festival which will take place on 20th to 23th February at the Roundhouse in Derby. It offers one of the best ales from over 400 cask ales, cider and world bear along with the performances of the fantastic live bands in the Derby Roundhouse. In addition, there are many activities you can take part in, such as being an apprentice brewer on ‘A Day with the Brewer’ experience or disclose some of the best pubs on Derby’s Perfect Pub Crawl.
If you are not very interested in ales, you could consider attending the Jorvik Viking Festival which will be hold in York from the 20th to 27th. You might be wondering what the relation between Viking and the UK is? Generally, you would first think of Scandinavia but York has a rich Norse heritage as well. This is a great opportunity to learn about Viking. You can hear Norse sagas and legend stories, learn some of the crafts from experts, try their food and watch the show of the Anglo-Saxons lock swords with the Viking invaders.
As music is one of the best ways to chill out, the Coastival Festival (22th to 24th February) is worth checking out. Over three days, the stage will be host to various genres of performances such as pop, comedy, dance, and so on. Feeling your soul immersing into the world of hip-hop and jazz whilst grinning all weekend because of the stand-up comedians; you will have an unforgettable experience. Furthermore, the Broadstairs Blue Bash Festival from 22th to 24th near Canterbury is another good choice for music lovers. It is more than exciting to enjoy the music from over 60 bands across the world.
