Things to do: Easter weekend 2013

Things to do

Finally another 4-day weekend is upon us – YAY – a perfect time to round up some friends and do something beyond the usual trip to your local. So to help inspire you to make the most of your Easter weekend citysocializer have compiled our favourite picks of the best things to do this bank holiday weekend.

Retro Sundays at Leaf
Sunday 31st March

If you love vintage clothes and unique one off pieces then this is the one for you, get a group of girls together and grab lunch downstairs afterwards. Leaf is one of our favourite venues in the city – laid back and friendly, it’s the perfect setting to while away a Sunday afternoon. Even if vintage isn’t your thing, it’s definitely worth stopping by for a coffee and cake.

Vintage Easter Afternoon Tea 
Saturday 30th March (secret location)
Expect an Easter twist on the traditional English tea party and a retro spring setting, which will transport you from the dismal winter weather outside. A big band, tea dance music and parlour games all add to the authentic experience. A great chance to get a group together to do something a little bit different this weekend. You’ll need to book tickets in advance so be quick!

The Botanic Gardens Easter Sculpture Exhibition
Friday 29th March – Monday 1st April

For the second year running the Botanic Gardens will be hosting their Easter sculpture exhibition. Wood, glass, steel, stone and paper sculptures adorn the gardens. Look out for dinosaurs, horses, birds as you weave your way around – a great group activity if the sun is out.

The Boat Race
Sunday 31st March

The annual battle back and this year takes place on Easter Sunday. If the suns out it’s a great opportunity to head down to the Thames with a bottle of prosecco and some cucumber sandwiches and make a day of it.

The Goat Race 
Sunday 31st March

With Cambridge looking to make it 5 years in row, Spitalfields City farm event is set to be more popular than ever this year, last year they were turning people away at the door so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment and all the proceeds go to the farm so well worth the £5.
