August Bank Holiday Weekend 2017

The August Bank Holiday Weekend is always a welcome break during what is normally one of the hottest months of the year. 

The eagerly awaited long weekend is smack bang in the middle of festival season and 2017 in particular has some crackers including Creamfields, Leeds and Reading, and South West Four amongst plenty more. But the August Bank Holiday isn't just about festivals - there's an awful lot more going on as well.

Whether you're embarking on a much needed blow out, heading into town, having a meal, or taking a mini break, make sure you check our August Bank Holiday What's On Guide to make the most of it.
