It's not only the weather that is beginning to hot up in Plymouth as there are plenty of exciting events taking place throughout April to look forward to in Britain's Ocean City.


The Easter Holidays are here

The Easter holidays take over the first two weeks of April as Plymouth is sprinkled with Easter joy. There are plenty of Easter activities taking place for the duration of the holiday including egg hunts, workshops, family-friendly events and so much more happening right across the city.

The Good Food and Craft Market is back outdoors!

The Good Food and Craft Market is back at the Royal William Yard on Sunday 7 April. However, for the first time this year the market is to be held outdoors rather than at the Melville Building and Courtyard. 

Between 10am and 2pm on the day you'll be able to find the market on the Royal William Yard Green. Gaze at locally made crafts and foods at the many marquees set to pop up on the lawn next to the water's edge.

Men's Day Out is back!

Back by popular demand for 2024, Men's Day Out is always an exciting day of miles, mates and memories!

The fundraising day, in aid of St Luke's Hospice, sees a mass of big-hearted men march their way through Plymouth to raise money for the charity. 

Taking the scenic 12km route which includes a waterfront stroll, the day ends with a visit to Plymouth Albion RFC where partakers will be welcomed with a well-earned pasty and a pint!
