In our opinion, it's not fun unless it's rum. Heading back to Cuban Embassy this year courtesy of the names behind Dine Birmingham, join the Birmingham Rum Festival 2017 for more rum tasters, heralded street food, live music and more.
Perhaps one of the most famous public summer UK festivals, The Notting Hill Carnival is a stalwart on the London events calendar. A completely vibrant celebration of culture, food and music - check out our guide to the best places around the carnival (and the best places to party after, too!).
A food festival in a vineyard - does it get much better? Kent's The Food Fest is returning for June 2017 to The Mount Vineyard; expect food some of the country's best food trucks, a festival disco dome, local bands, spa giveaways and a Mad Hatter's tea corner.
Sophie Ellis Bextor, Allsaints, Technotronic, Snap - sounds like the best Now CD that's ever been made. Enjoy it all this summer at Victoria Park's Mighty Hoopla festival. Grab your friends, relax in the sunshine, enjoy a few drinks and roll back the clocks to the days of your carefree youth.
The Vault Festival is bringing a land of wonder for your kids as Mini-Rumpus transforms the vaults into a mystical wonderland. Dance all day with the energetic Tell Tale Tusk, marvel at the jaw-dropping circus acts of the Chivaree circus or wander into a land of mystical wonderment with the woodland creatures of Figs in Wigs.
