10 Things To Do In 2018

1 - Celebrate the Royal Wedding

If you didn’t already know, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married on Saturday 19 May.  So in British tradition it's time to get the tables out, dust down the chairs and hang the bunting. It's time for a street party.  What a great way to know your fellow neighbours? Oh, and don’t forget those commemorative plates too…

2 - Cheer on England!

Who is ready for another summer of excitement, anticipation and usually disgruntlement? Despite only England from the UK involved, the next men’s World Cup takes place in Russia, beginning in June. Be prepared for sitting at the edge of your seat with the St George’s flag painted on your cheeks, cheering or crying. Let’s hope it doesn’t go to a penalty shootout…

3 - Have a staycation

Put that passport away and why not check out what the UK has to offer? There are plenty of beautiful places for you to go and explore; Lake District? Isle of Skye? Or even a city break in London might surprise you. Sometimes, the best things on your doorstep. So, rather than waiting a couple of hours to board a plane, get in the car or jump on the train and go on a British adventure.

4 - See the lights!

Did you ever go and see Blackpool Illuminations as a child? Well, if you did, why not go back and reminisce. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for? Blackpool has that nostalgic feel for adults and children to enjoy. Fish and chips on the pier at day, walking down the Promenade watching the trams go by at night. Sounds tempting doesn’t it…

5 - Must-see attraction in Merseyside

The wonderful city of Liverpool will be hosting a once in a lifetime event from February to October. Get prepared to go back thousands of years, you don’t want miss out on this opportunity! Costing short of £15 for adults, you’ll have the chance to see the ‘eighth wonder of the world.

6 - Take a trip to the cinema

Grab your popcorn (or your pick ‘n’ mix). put your drink in the cup holder, sit back and enjoy some of the best films of the year. We've got Avengers: Infinity, Jurassic World 2 and Incredibles 2 hitting the big screen in 2018.

7 - Alternative to Glastonbury

Unfortunately for festival-lovers, there won’t be a Glastonbury 2018. Where else could you go? Well, don’t worry. Music fans can still set up their tents at Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Download and more. If you fancy something a little bit different, The Biggest Weekend will take place over four days. So, watch out for when tickets are on sale…

8 - Have some good family fun

It might seem quite a while away but it will be here quicker than you think. Summer. And many of us like to make the most of the sunshine we get. There's plenty of things to do in the sun, like going to the park, having a picnic and BBQ.

9 - It’s behind you!

Oh no it’s not! Dare we even mention the word Christmas even though it’s happened? Bear with us, we’ve got a good idea. Take a look around the shops for stocking fillers or even the card shops. You never know they might have Christmas cards on offer. It takes away a bit of pain for you come November/December!

10 - Try something different

Have no regrets. Don’t get to the end of 2018 and think, I wish I had a go at trying that. Fancy taking up the paintbrush? Want to get fitter and into better shape? Or even, you’ve always want to be on the radio or TV? Have a look around, see what courses are happening in your area and get registered. You never know, you might have a hidden talent!
