The electronic festival that’s a hit every year. Held over the August bank holiday weekend (25-28th of the month) this festival is for all the dance music fans and for those who want a real party experience. This year the festival is launching The Creamfields Collective 2016 – bringing together different businesses and activities to enhance the festival experience for all those who want it. It includes a pamper street, bingo and an inflatable church you can actually get married in!


Casino Visits


If you fancy a night out full of twists and turns with a bit of class, the casino might be for you. Offering a more chilled out experience than a festival or a club night, you can go with friends or on a date and game all night long. Not only are casinos fun, the games they offer have the ability to improve some of your mental functions, like problem solving and hand eye coordination. with this preview from Coral, you can read about how the games can help you to improve different areas.


Club nights


The UK club scene is still as hot as ever, and if you can’t find anywhere good to go in your local area, how about checking out one of the places suggested by The Guardian. Perhaps you fancy a night in smaller club where the music is the most important thing – you could try Soup kitchen in Manchester. Or for a huge night out try the Night Kitchen in Sheffield. Travelling for a night out is not something that everyone can do, but it’s always worth it if you can. Booking your hotel and train tickets in advance is always a good way to save money for a visit to a different city. Combining the club night with some sightseeing during the day, and you have yourself a fun filled 48 hours.


There is no reason to be bored this summer. There’s lots going on, all over the country – you just have to go out and find it.
