News – Your bank holiday weekend essentials


With the August bank holiday just around the corner, it’s time to get planning. We’ve found some essentials to make your bank holiday amazing no matter what your plans. 

Festival fun

Are you planning on going to a festival this bank holiday weekend? Visit Sports Direct in the Grosvenor Shopping centre to get the essentials.  What is a festival without a bucket hat? Channel your inner 1990s hip-hop with this Adidas Original bucket hat from Sports Direct. This timeless piece is the perfect accessory to any festival outfit for just £14.99. 

At no festival do you want to be carrying around a big bag with you, so a bum bag is the perfect solution. Just tie around your waist or body and then it leaves your hands free for dancing! This Nike Air Bum Bag is discreet but big enough to fit in the essentials with a zip, so nothing falls out. Get it from Sports Direct for £17.

As we all know British weather can be unpredictable even in August so it’s best to be prepared. If it so happens that your bank holiday is a rainy one, then a pair of wellies will get you through the day. These wellies from Schuh for £65 have a sturdy sole and adjustable tab. 

Beach days 

Is a family beach day more your thing? Your little one is sure to love this floral ladybird beach towel that even folds away into a backpack. Visit TK Maxx in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre to get this towel for £6. 

Dance the night away
