Things to do this weekend: 29 - 31 May
By now, our enthusiasm for online streaming is beginning to wane. Thankfully, the warm weather coupled with a slightly less strict lockdown have come to our rescue, making spending time outdoors an increasingly appealing prospect. But before you write off virtual events completely, these happenings – now bedded in to our culture – are taking on new forms and adapting to keep us entertained.
From the return of Tate Lates (albeit in virtual form) to a literary festival and a theatre experience curated just for you, here’s what not to miss this weekend.
Seen by many as the highlight of the literary year, Hay Festival may well be the closest thing to heaven on earth for bookworms. This year, the festival has returned in virtual form – and this weekend is your last chance to catch it. Among those speaking this weekend are Hilary Mantel, Helena Bonham Carter, Dominic West, Caroline Lucas, Sandi Toksvig and many more. Browse the programme and sign up to the events that take your fancy. Anything that’s fully booked will be made available on Hay Festival’s YouTube channel following the live event.
