LEISURE: Excuses to get out this Summer with plenty of activities


Summer has brought the sun and warm weather so we thought we would bring you some summer activities and events to enjoy, from art to dancing there is something for everyone this summer season.

As the warmer weather rolls in, we know that many of you will be itching to make the most of it and embrace the outdoors after more than a year shut away. To help you along we have brought you some activities that will be taking place over the next month or two.

BCP has events from the end of July all the way to the start of September – hopefully the sun will make quite a few appearances between now and then.
