Remember when we thought that winter would never end? Well, it finally has, and June’s set to be a scorcher. Not just because it looks like we might actually, maybe get some good weather, but because there’s just so much to do. So much, in fact, that we recruited our mates at DesignMyNight to round up the top 10 things to do in June across the country.
The jewel of Clapham is taking inspiration from none other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a World Cup viewing party dedicated to those that love themselves. There’s a stadium like atmosphere, football singalongs, and a gigantic HD screen playing the England games. Will this be the best football pop-up of the year? Only God knows… and he’s at Infernos.
Sometimes the only thing that can get you through the trauma of exams is 5 hours of unlimited tastings of Belgian craft beer. Luckily, Ales Tales Festival is supplying just that, taking over Oval Space to deliver electronic live music, your weight in mouthwatering Belgian chips, and over 70 beers; you might as well celebrate in style.
Yee-haw, it’s time don the Stetson hats and cowboy gear because you’re invited to a showdown at the Moonshine Saloon. A slice of the Wild West in West London, this immersive cocktail bar will see you interact with the cowboys in the bar, whether that’s by throwing dice, playing cards, or exchanging tales of adventure. While you’re there, The King of the Moonshiners will shake you up some seriously impressive cocktails.
Wanna know how summer’s finally here? Check in at Studio 338, who are throwing three amazing pool parties where they’ll be playing the best in reggae, hip-hop, and garage. Expect two pools filled with inflatables, poolside cocktails, street food from your favourite city spots, and ultimate sunny vibes.
Chin, chin old sport! Festibowl is taking over Finsbury Square in London for the most British summer experience you can find. Grab an ice-cold drink and throw some balls to beat your mates on the freshly cut grass, all while listening to banging tunes and munching on street food to give you the energy for your victory lap.
Bottomless wings. Free-flowing cocktails. Endless K-Pop. No, you haven’t just woken from a dream, you’re hearing about Wing Wing’s K-Pop Brunch. You’ll be able to feast on five hours of never-ending chicken wings as the K-Pop music is played through speakers and across LED screens. If you’re feeling like a true Korean popstar, you can reserve their karaoke room and unleash that inner star.
The rest of your student loan probably won’t cover a trip to the Caribbean, but don’t worry, The Rum Festival is coming to Glasgow. When vendors aren’t supplying you with over 100 different rums alongside a mixer and garnish of your choice, there’s street food to eat, and interesting talks from industry experts and bloggers. Of course, once the rum’s in you, you’ll probably end up storming the dance floor to the beat of steel drums.
If you’ve spent more than a minute at uni, then you know a thing or two about clubbing. But, you haven’t learnt anything until you’ve experienced Ultimate Power. This spiritual experience of a club night plays the absolute best power ballads of all time – we’re talking everyone from Bon Jovi to Meat Loaf – as everyone in the place sings their lungs out, together. Beautiful.
The only thing better than brunch? Bottomless brunch. Patterns are helping your Saturdays in June go off with unlimited prosecco, bloody marys, mimosas, and soft drinks, all while you feast on sourdough topped with stuff for carnivores and herbivores alike. On top of all that? It just so happens to be hosted in one of the coolest venues on Brighton beachfront.
The award-winning Tina T’urner Tea Lady is coming back to Birmingham for another round of her Steamy Bingo. With a high energy 80s soundtrack, you’ll be laughing, dancing, and playing your darn hardest to win this ridiculous ball-filled comedy game.
