With something for everyone - big or small - there are plenty of UK festival events worth looking into, whatever your tastes.

A celebration wholly in honour of wondrous mixology, Cocktails in the City is making a triumphant return this year, with events in London, Leeds, Manchester and Edinburgh. A UK drinks festival with some serious panache, guests of this event will find pop-up bars, DJs, experimental drinks and tasting sessions, and will also rub shoulders with the best of their city's cocktail scene.
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!).
From live immersive theatrical experiences and comedy shows, to musical performances and story-telling sessions, guests are encouraged to completely submerge themselves in the Tellit Festival in London. Taking place over the space of a week this October, guests will hear the real life stories of various individuals, including Syrians now living in London, spoken word artists and a collection of hilarious comedians.
