Last week I looked at some fun, cheap activities for families to take part in and enjoy during Summer 2017. But it is worth acknowledging that not all adults have children, and that doesn’t mean that child free adults don’t want to enjoy their summer too. Today I am focusing on some activities and places that adults can enjoy during the summer that won’t break the bank.
ParkLives Programme in Association with Coca Cola
ParkLives is a free initiative taking place around the UK that aims to get us fitter and more active by staging sporting and exercise activities in our local green spaces. As mentioned, the activities are free, and include such diverse sessions as Tai Chi, Walking football, Pilates and Beginners Yoga. The sessions have already begun, and will be taking place all through the Summer at selected parks, including a whole range of Birmingham Parks. You can find more information at the ParkLives website.
Enjoy a Game of Bingo
On my recent holiday there was a daily game of bingo at the hotel, and I was amazed to find how popular this traditional pastime still is. These days, you can of course play from the comfort of your own home, with many sites offering an initial free play. Bingo Kings is a reviewing website which gives you all the information about current bingo sites, including any free plays, minumum deposits and withdrawals, types of games, number of balls etc, so if you are planning on having a little flutter, it may be worth checking out the lowdown on Bingo Kings first.
A trip to the seaside
A trip to the seaside can be very expensive, but it really doesn’t have to be. A walk on the beach is free. Sitting on the sand, collecting unusual stones and shells is also free. Enjoying fish and chips with loads of salt and vinegar, still wrapped in chip paper will cost less than £10 and will be better than the best gourmet meal you will ever eat in a restaurant. Set your seaside budget and stick to it, and you will have the most amazing day. After all, all you really need is the sunshine.
Free Museums, Free Galleries – they are out there.
Many museums and art galleries are free to enter, and should definitely be a port of call this Summer. The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery has a stunning range of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, whilst the beautiful Wolverhampton Art Gallery has a great collection of Pop Art. Oak House in West Bromwich is a fine example of a 16th Century timber framed house that is a fabulous museum too. All of these amazing attractions are free to enter and enjoy.
