On the 6th and 7th of June, Wollaton Park in Nottingham will be packed with some of the biggest names in music this year. Jessie Ware, John Newman, Dj Fresh, Dj EZ, Eton Messy and Bondax (to name a few) will all be at No Tomorrow festival for some hair-raising, head-bopping, fist-pumping performances. Over the weekend, at least 30 artists will be performing but that’s not all, here are 10 more things to do while you’re there:
1) Go to the Bearded Kitten Games Arena:
The name sounds just as crazy as what happens there. Get the chance to take part in a range of tournaments and bring out your inner child. From Wobble Football to Blindfold Boxing and Jelly wrestling, you won’t get bored.
2) Get down at the car-boot Disco Bingo:
Dancing, bingo with a twist, and a chance to grab yourself some prizes. ‘Lose yourself to dance’ in a virtual disco and get 80’s attire for your next fancy dress party.
3) Create something new:
Tap into your creative side and attend one of the free workshops on Saturday. From camera straps to tote bags there’s plenty of accessories to make!
4) Battle on the dance-off Stage
If you’re anything like me then you’ve definitely been practising your best moves in the mirror, you’re ready to show them off. Be a champion (or a sore loser) at No Tomorrow Festival.
5) Taste 3Cs Caribbean Catering
Spice it up with some jerk chicken as 3Cs catering brings a taste of the Caribbean to England (never mind the wellies and rain).
6) Take pictures in the photo-booth:
Capture the moment in the festival photo-booth, with fancy dress, wigs and all sorts of props.
7) Eat at Diamond Dogs:
What’s summer without a hot dog stand? Diamond hot dogs are made from scratch, freshly smoked, just for you.
8) Eat at Los Churros Amigos:
Translation: the churro friends..Try a delicious Spanish churros dipped in Belgian chocolate, you won’t regret it.
9) Make new friends:
From milkmen to camera men on channel 4, I know I’ve met lots of interesting new people at festivals. With 9.4k people attending on Facebook, I’m sure there won’t be a shortage of friendly faces.
10) Drink responsibly:
While we’re all out to have a good time hopefully you’ll resist the urge to get carried away, meaning you can enjoy the weekend to the fullest!
