Event | Wizards and Witches Afternoon Tea, The Exchange, Cardiff

Sun 29th | Tickets: £16.58 – £32.57

Don’t let being a mere muggle put you off this wizarding afternoon tea at The Exchange. Fly by for a spot of tea and a selection of tasty treats, including mouth-wateringly magical cakes and savoury sand-witches.

The hotel’s very own Grand Hall will be bewitched for the day to look just like the Great Hall at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, perfect for all those die-hard Potter fans.

While filling your cake hole, your knowledge of the wizarding world will be put to the test, with a potter-themed quiz (with some prizes up for grabs.)

Show | The Big Show, Candelriggs, Glasgow

Sat 28th | Tickets: £14.95 – £53

Spend a night watching the biggest and best cabaret show in Scotland! The Big Show will treat you to a night you’ll never forget, with a variety of performers from awe-inspiring circus acrobats and side show spectaculars to mind blowing mentalists and dazzling dancers!

Sit back and soak-up the fully-choreographed cabaret show, while dinner and drinks are served. Top off the night with karaoke and dancing till the early hours. Altogether now: “Sweet Caroline…”

Theatre | 9 to 5 The Musical, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

Fri 27th – Sat 28th | Tickets: start from £13

Written by the Queen of country Dolly Parton, 9 to 5 the musical tells a tale of three workmates who are determined to shakeup their workplace, inject a bit of fun, and tell their boss’ to sod off!

The award-winning soundtrack features over 15 hits, including the famed ‘9 to 5’ and ‘Backwoods Barbie’. This show is fresh from the West End where it has received rave reviews, so this one is not to missed. And it gets five stars from us!

Event | An evening of live piano at The Gin and Tea Bar, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Sat 28th | Reservation: Free

Firstly, a Gin and Tea bar…genius! This Saturday head over for a slightly sophisticated, slash, slightly tipsy evening of live piano, by their talented pianist at Cheltenham’s Gin and Tea Bar.

Gins will be flowing, while the classical music plays, making for a very cultured night indeed. The bar will be serving food and of course a vast variety of drinks, especially gins. We recommend you book as this will be a very popular event.
