If there’s one thing that Brits know how to do well (and in fact, we think there are lots of things that
the Brits are good at), it’s having a good party. There are hundreds of British events and festivals to look out for in 2015 that you
could potentially go to.
Taking place in May, Birmingham Pride is the UK’s biggest LGBT festival with its famous carnival
parade and a whole lot more. The festival celebrates the diversity of the LGBT community, but all
are welcome to join in and some of the UK’s biggest stars will perform on stage during the festival.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed describes itself as the ‘world’s largest motoring garden party’.
There are lots of formal and informal catering options, helicopter flights are available and a busy
calendar of events includes motor shows, races and the famous Hillclimb. The Goodwood Festival
of Speed takes place in June.
Being held in Blackpool in July 2015, Europe’s Tribute to Elvis is where you can see some of the
best Elvis Presley tribute acts in the world. At the Winter Gardens, this event (the third of its kind)
will also feature merchandise stalls and celebrity meet and greets.
In Cornwall in July, the Tropical Pressure Festival is a celebration of the lively cultures of Africa, the
Caribbean and Latin America. As well as live performances, the festival has ‘healing huts’ where
guests can go to relax. Families are welcome, and there are craft activities for the kids to enjoy.
Part of the Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Pandemonium! is a fantastic introduction to festivals and
events for the youngest people in your family. It takes places in August and includes art and craft
activities, music workshops (bring your own instrument) and a lantern procession. You can visit just
for the children’s festival, or for the Shrewsbury Folk Festival with a detour to the space that has
been set aside for little ones.
There are dozens of festivals and events that raise money for charity, with some or all of their profits
going to good causes. The Newquay Beer Festival is one, giving you a great way to feel good about
enjoying a few refreshing beverages. There will be entertainment at this September 2015 event, and
camping facilities are available. All the funds raised will go to charity.
So we’ve covered the British events and festivals to look out for in 2015. We are all really looking forward to each and every event & festival this year – we hope to see you there.
