Easter weekend: spring has arrived, the bank holidays are rolling in and – for many – this is the first chance to really kick off that winter malaise. If you’re not being carted off to spend quality time with the family, London has plenty to offer over this glorious four-day weekend. Here’s a tight PHOENIX edit of the freshest, sunniest ways to put a skip back into your step.
The Lock Tavern Festival
Not the traditional type? Head straight to the Lock Tavern in Camden for their annual festival. With a strong mix of DJs, bands, and street food pop-ups to keep you entertained over the weekend, it’s the ideal place to party the bank holiday away.
Regent Street Easter Cocktail Hunt
Indulgence doesn’t have to come in a Cadbury’s box now you’re a grown up (ish) – from today you can head down Regent Street to order themed Easter cocktails from a selection of the bars and hotels in the area. Cream Egg Martini, anyone?
Cirque Du Soul
The eclectic evening returns this weekend for an Easter Special, with Rob Da Bank headlining at Studio 338. If you pick one feelgood party this weekend, make it this one.
All of this belongs to you at the V&A
Light on culture? Head to the V&A, where (if you didn’t bag Savage Beauty tickets) the politically minded, ‘All of this belongs to you’ exhibitions opens. In the lead up to the general elections, it examines the role of public institutions in contemporary life and the responsibility of national collections.
Selfridges Easter Egg Hunt
For those looking to embrace their inner kid – or keep some little ones entertained – then Selfridges will be hiding Charbonnel et Walker treats all over the fourth floor. Ideal for those seeking sugary treats and fashionable treasures alike.
