Welcome to manic May! Festival season is well upon us, with Foodies Festival, the Gin Festival and Vegfest all happening this month, as well as numerous beer festivals, pop-ups and street parties, phew!
Put on your stretchiest trousers and have your Berocca to hand – summer is here and it’s looking full on already….
The sun is back, and that can only mean one thing: al fresco drinking!
The daffodils are coating every grassy area of town from Castle Park to The Downs, and the temperature is steadily rising…so I think it’s safe to say that we can start looking forward to long days of sitting on quaysides after work with a cold beverage in hand. Hurrah!
Get your questionable summer shirts on and prepare to type up your ‘out of the office’ for the 4 day weekend – it’s time to hear what tasty things are happening in April…
