This week has flown by; I can’t believe its Friday again and time to see what’s on around the country. However, with the weather forecast would we be better grabbing the duvet and a couple of DVDs? Well for the brave amongst us, including me, here are a couple of ideas for the weekend.

On Saturday in Warwick the museum of the Warwickshire Yeomanry will be open to the public from 11am. The museum has been closed for the past two years undergoing refurbishment and reopens with a display commemorating the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. The museum is located in the basement of the Court House on Jury Street so at least you will be dry.

For those who laugh at a little bit of wind and rain, why not get yourselves down to the Dundonald Highland Games this Saturday. This is the Games’ 25th anniversary and has become one of Aryshire’s premier culture events. It is unique in capturing traditional Scottish heritage and strong community spirit within the picturesque setting of Royal Dundonald Castle. Admission to the event is completely free and offers a whole range of entertainment and activities including a traditional highland games with pipe band contest, drum majors, solo piping, highland dancing, battle re-enactment, heavy events, side stalls, massed pipe bands display and street parades.

Nearer to home there is a Fun Dog Show taking place on Sunday afternoon in Tatton Park in Cheshire. Ten novelty classes including ‘Saddest Eyes’, ‘Waggiest Tail’, and ‘Scruffiest Dog’ are up for grabs and there is a fun agility course to try out as well. An official ‘Show Trophy’ is up for grabs and rosettes to be awarded to 6th place. Events start at 12pm sharp.

Over in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, there is a chance to explore, for the hardy, the landscape’s archaeological heritage with the Park’s Senior Archaeologist. Starting at 1.00pm the 5-6 mile route includes beautiful views through Kilburn Woods, Thief’s Highway and Hood Hill, and the iconic Kilburn White Horse. The walk is mostly on woodland paths, but be prepared for some steep ascents and descents.

Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy it and if you don’t manage to get out why not check out the latest sale bargains we have on the website so you can get outdoors next weekend.
