5 cheap ways to enjoy the bank holiday if it actually stays sunny!

As we approach the bank holiday it’s started to look more and more likely that the sun will stay out for the long weekend. Can this really be? If, like most of us, you weren’t prepared for this eventuality we’ve got some tips to make the most of your hot bank holiday!

1. Watch a film outdoors

We always see things like this happening in films (how meta?!) but have you ever tried it yourself? For those of us that aren’t lucky enough to have a projector or a nice white wall, get your hands on a smartphone projector and a white sheet and host your very own outdoor movie night for you and your friends! Don’t forget to use your IWOOT discount on this one!

2. Go to the park and play sports

This one seems obvious but we don’t do it often enough! Go out and relive your youth; grab a ball, head to the park and spend a full day playing in the sun. With the World Cup round the corner, there’s no better time to practise your footie skills.

3. Visit a lido

IMHO lido’s are extremely underrated! On hot days they have the ability to make you believe you’re in an exotic location (honestly the pic below is not Rio, it’s Ruislip!) There are so many dotted all around the UK so go out and find your closest one!

4. Listen to a podcast in the sun

We know it’s exam season and you might not have a lot of time to out and about enjoying the sun, so why not take a short break away from the books and put on your favourite podcast and just lie in the sun!

5. Have a BBQ

HOW did we even make it this far in the list without mentioning this? This is the number 1 rule when the sun comes out: get the BBQ on! If you’re thinking you’ve left it too late to organise all the food, Iceland have us covered with their Ultimate BBQ, which contains 50 pieces for only a tenner! Don’t forget to use your UNiDAYS discount on this one either!
