The folk of Durham don't often blow their own trumpets but when it comes to celebrating their rich mining heritage, they're, well... bold as brass. We'll be in the throng of 200,000 visitors once again on 13 July for the annual Durham Miner's Gala - a rousing procession of pit village banners with a stirring brass band soundtrack. These days a whole festival featuring workshops and performances has grown around 'The Big Meeting'. Limited for time? Head to Durham on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 for non-stop, free brass street bands between 11am and 5pm.
Cream nightclub took dance music to industrial levels back in the day and lately they’ve been focussed on bringing big beats to new audiences. First, they sold out Liverpool Cathedral with the 50-piece Kaleidoscope Orchestra and their instrumental reworkings of club classics. Now, they’re heading outdoors for classical dance in Sefton Park. Big-name DJs like Paul Oakenfold, Faithless and Roger Sanchez will provide the bangers while you enjoy the barbecue. Or mash-ups.
Forget everything you think you know about Scottish cuisine and ready the post-holiday waistline jeans for the Edinburgh Food Festival. This celebration of delicious street fare features stalls to suit almost every palate. We know from experience that exhibitors Jarvis Pickle dish up Scotland’s best meat pie – and now they have a British Pie Awards gong to prove it. There are flavours from Europe, the Caribbean and beyond too. Even grub from as far afield as Glasgow!
As a city, Glasgow doesn’t seem to be content with mere two-day weekends. A flying visit never does it justice – and it’s not quite long enough to enjoy the Merchant City festival. Travel down on Thursday to catch the start. Carnivals, craft fairs and a street food metropolis await you. Dance shows, singalongs, even a barrel-making exhibition follow. All this and you’re surrounded by gourmet eateries, high-end shops and cocktail bars. You’ll find us in the latter. Cheers!
This July is packed with must-see events in the North and Scotland so why not book an Advance ticket now?
