Fun Ways to Spend the Spring Bank Holiday

We’re spoilt recently when it comes to bank holidays – the long Easter weekend is just behind us but we have the upcoming spring bank holiday to look forward to! That’s right, you have another day to spend having fun with the whole family. Looking for fun things to do in Birmingham? Take a look at this list of activities and family friendly days out.

Pizza Festival

Can’t get enough of that melt-in-your-mouth cheesy goodness? Then you’ll be excited to know that a pizza festival is coming to the city on bank holiday weekend! That’s right, a whole festival dedicated to pizza to send you into a cheese coma. It’s taking place at No21 Digbeth on 29th April, and is set to be a great day out. Buy your tickets in advance from

May Day Jump

The kids aren’t in school on the first day of May, so why not keep them active at a trampoline park? Don’t forget adults can join in too! Adults will also love the special offers Rush has at the moment, to keep family days out affordable. Take advantage of our May Day holiday plans, BOGOF on all open jump tickets! This could halve the total price of your family jump. What’s more, why not stay for lunch as we’re also offering BOGOF kids and adult meals! Plus, a day at Rush will tire them out which is always a bonus at bedtime!


If it doesn’t rain at some point over the bank holiday weekend (for a change) then the best way to keep the kids off the games console is to get them outside. Take the dog for a long walk or try a cycling track. There’s nothing like a group cycling trip in the countryside!

Visit the Zoo

A long weekend is a great opportunity to visit the zoo, and Dudley Zoological Gardens offers fun for all ages.  Children love seeing all the animals, and it’s also an educational trip out – so parents can rest assured they’ve not wasted a day they should have been at school. The Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park is also a great option for viewing endangers species.

Malvern and Brueton Park

Once again if the weather allows, then why not go for a lovely spring walk in the park. You can easily spend the entire day here with rolling parklands, children’s play areas, a nature reserve and a café for snacks. There’s also nature trails the family can follow together to find birds and butterflies.

Don’t forget that bank holidays tend to be busy everywhere, so don’t forget to book your chosen activity!
