What To Do In The UK – August

Posted July 29, 2010 by BookingBuddy

Carnaval  With summer in full swing this month, make sure you spend some time out and about before the weather starts to cool down again. Whether you’re into sports, music, or good food and drinks, you’ll find something to enjoy this month.


1st August – Carnaval del Pueblo, Elephant and Castle, London

Brazilian flair comes to London this Sunday, with this annual South American carnival in Burgess Park, near Elephant and Castle. The carnival features a number of themed stages, including a children stage, with performances aimed at the young ones. View the Salsa Dance Championships and vote for your favourites to win. Of course, no carnival is complete without tasty food – enjoy a variety of South American favourites from the various stalls on site.


12th – 15th August – Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, Bristol

You won’t see the standard helium-filled balloons here, but rather, colourful hot-air balloons. Visitors will be able to enjoy rides in these spectacular balloons, as well as enjoy the sight of the Nightglow, where over 30 balloons glow in time to music.


29th – 30th August – Mathew Street Festival, Liverpool

Liverpool is renowned as a highly musical city, and this annual free festival celebrates the city’s love for music. 95 bands from all over the world will perform on its six outdoor stages. Delicious food and drink can be bought from the city’s well-known collection of restaurants, cafes and pubs.
