summer concert weekends


My good friends Dave and Sue decided they would like to make the most of the their weekends in summer 2008 by taking in some of the great outdoor concerts on offer.

What do you recommend asked Sue and can you help me with tickets and maybe  somewhere to stay close by?

Well I would say Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday bash – the 44664 Concert has to be an obvious choice on June 27th in Hyde Park, It will be so special and I expect some real celebs will turn up as surprise performances are promised.

Another option is the O2 Wireless Festival again in Hyde Park but in early July. It has some top acts including Fatboy Slim , Morrissey and Sam Sparro. Reply back and let me know of any outdoor concert events for weekends in Summer 08 you recommend

Kids don’t you just love them! OK Becky so what do yo have in mind. We….ll she said something that he will think is really cool but that we will enjoy too. I was thinking some kind of activity break .

Easy thinks I with a wide range of Activity Breaks available throughout the UK, everything from White Water Rafting in Wales to Karting, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Rock Climbing and Abseilling to newer sports Sphereing , Coasteering and Surf Ski-ing. OK what do you fancy, where do you want to go and when…
