Bank Holiday Weekends

Nothing heralds the new season like a bank holiday weekend. May must be one of my favourite months because we get May Day and the Queen’s Birthday. Thank you, your majesty, I’ll be sure to bake you a cake.

Now, what to do when you’ve got an extra day? Here are some suggestions for fun activities to make the most of May:

Fashion shows at Che Camille
The new fashion collective in the Argyle Arcade is hosting 2 fashion shows this weekend. Further information can be found on their website. I’m particularly intrigued by the notion of Rabii Denim, a line of made to measure jeans featured at Che Camille.

Hinterland
The Hinterland festival will be taking over Glasgow’s best music venues soon – Thursday in fact, and lasts until Friday. One ticket gets you access to 15 venues, to see over 100 bands, including the Fall, Sons and Daughters, and Isoceles. Plus, there will contemporary art on display as well.

Dr Who exhibit at the Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum
Spend the afternoon with Daleks and dorks by catching this special exhibition. I’ll be there, as there is a special place in my heart for anything nerdy. Props, costumes and monsters will be on display. Book tickets in advance though, there has been very high demand.

Beltane Fire Festival
Celebrate the coming of summer with fire and naked pagans on Calton Hill in Edinburgh. Find out why this popular event attracts thousands every year.

Faith Healing at Destiny Church
Richard Roberts, son of TV evangelist Oral Roberts, will be in Glasgow to dispense miracles and healing like sweeties at Destiny Church in the Southside of Glasgow. Go for a flavour of America’s fastest growing religion, charismatic Christianity. Maybe people will start speaking in tongues.

Taste of Edinburgh Festival
I have gone to this event for 2 years in a row, and loved it both times. It’s a day of eating and drinking and sitting in the sun at Inverleith Park. It’s worth going for the VIP tickets because at some point during the day you’ll want to sit in the quiet, shaded, VIP enclosure and drink some champagne – I promise.
