The sun is out and there’s lots happening in Plymouth this weekend, here’s five reasons to get out of the house and enjoy some summer sun this weekend.

Plymouth Respect Festival returns

The very popular Plymouth Respect Festival returns to the city this Saturday. An annual celebration of the city’s diverse culture, organised by PDREC, the main event will take place on Plymouth Piazza and in Plymouth Guildhall, with a silent disco at the Civic Centre Piazza.

All you need to do is turn up and take part – simple!


Head to the beach

With the sunshine here – make the weekend a summer adventure and head to one of Plymouth’s nearby beaches. From the pebbled beaches of the Hoe Foreshore, to Firestone Bay or the further afield sandy beaches of Bovisand, Wembury or Bigbury you’ve got holiday feels just a short journey away!

Don’t forget to pack your sun cream, and a bag to do a ten minute beach clean whilst you’re there!

Because the night belongs to us

Need a bit of shade? Head to The Box for a step back into Plymouth ‘after dark’ through the years. The retrospective exhibition running from 25 June – 4 September examining Plymouth’s nightlife and culture through the voices of those who’ve experienced it. If you were out and about in Plymouth over the years it’s definitely worth a visit to see if you can spot memorabilia for places you partied!

Enjoy a sea view picnic

Is it really summer in Plymouth if you don’t enjoy a picnic on the Hoe? Pack up your picnic favourites (we like a freshly made sandwich on Jacka Bakery bread and some locally made Burts crisps) and a picnic blanket and head on up to the Hoe to soak up the views of Plymouth Sound whilst enjoying the sunshine with friends and family.

If you’ve got empty plastic bottles after your picnic make sure to pop down to feed them to our waste whale on Hoe Road!
