What To Do In The UK – February

Posted January 27, 2011 by BookingBuddy

Scallop+race+002 With lengthening days ahead, there’s plenty to keep you entertained this month. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so make sure you get some chocolates and roses ready for your loved one. Of course, if you find the lovey-dovey stuff a little sickly, just focus on football or rugby matches instead, or head to York and pretend you’re a Viking!

 

6th February – Clown Service, Holy Trinity Church, London

The annual Clown Service takes place in the Holy Trinity Church today, in honour of Joseph Grimaldi. Grimaldi was one of the most famous English clowns in the 18th-19th century, and is buried in nearby Joseph Grimaldi Park. Stay around after the service, as attending clowns often put on performances for the public. Those of you with a case of coulrophobia – that’s a fear of clowns – may want to stay away from the place.

 

12th – 20th February – Rye Bay Scallop Festival, Rye

The pretty seaside town of Rye is awash with scallops this month, as the Rye Bay Scallop Festival gets underway. Restaurants throughout town will be offering mouth-watering scallop-based dishes, and there will be scallop cooking demonstrations throughout the week. Cap off the week with a scallop race – roll up your sleeves, grab a wheelbarrow and join in the ‘What A Load of Scallops’ race for a chance to win the coveted plaque!

 

26th February – 6th March – Bath Literature Festival, Bath

The Bath Literature Festival returns to the historic cobblestoned streets of Bath. There will be a series of free poetry readings and storytelling sessions around the city, a ‘Writer’s Surgery’ for those who are stuck on their latest projects, as well as a poetry pub crawl! Writers appearing at the festival include Dr. David Starkey, Polly Toynbee, Kazuo Ishiguro and Jane Shilling.
