It’s going to be one of the strangest bank holiday weekends yet, but one filled with just a glimmer of – can we say it? We’re going to say it – hope. London venues, for the most part, are closed, but unlike last year, we don’t have to stay indoors.
The latest stage on the roadmap arrived just in time for the four-day Easter Bank Holiday weekend. We’re officially allowed to meet outdoors in groups of six, and that includes private gardens. Elite, micro barbeques will be taking place all over the city, where close friends will gather and poke at flaming coals while they try to remember how to socialise. No garden? Take to a London park where it’s chill to grill, or just pick a patch of grass and order takeaway straight to that spot.
If you want to leave that sweet blanket on the grass, you can even DO things with other people outdoors. Visit Kew Gardens, rent a self-driving boat, or, if you can grab one of the elusive time slots, go for a lido swim. It’s not the Easter we were expecting, but you can be damn sure we’re going to make the most of it (at a safe two-metre distance).
