Shareagift’s Top Five Daring, Different And Downright Daft Days Out This Summer!

Many of us will be choosing to stay away from theme parks this summer, (for obvious reasons) so here at Shareagift we have set about finding the new ultimate day out to ensure that your summer will be the best it can be!

After extensive research we have narrowed it down to the top five days out that will dazzle, amaze and cater to even the fussiest of people. Depending on what type of experience you are looking for there will be a day out to cater to everyone’s interests, after all being pushed down a hill in a giant ball isn’t everyone’s idea of fun!

5- Spy Academy, An Educational Day Out!

The Spy Academy is based in Milton Keynes where you will learn how to fire automatic pistols and rifles, conceal surveillance cameras and transmitting bugs and even how to throw an axe! The course starts at £49 but who can put a price on knowing how to spy on your next-door neighbour! www.spy-games.com

4 – Pamberton’s Chocolate Farm, A Foodie’s Day Out!

Imagine Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, surrounded by hills and in the middle of Wales, well that’s exactly what you will experience when you visit Pamberton’s Chocolate Farm! Within this complex you will find a large chocolate fountain, a chocolate museum and even a chocolate cinema! There are chocolate demonstrations and tastings running throughout the day and if that isn’t enough there’s a chocolate café, shop and delicatessen! http://www.douk.com/things-to-do/south-wales/pembertons-chocolate-farm/

3 – Zorbing, A Thrill Seekers Day Out!

Zorbing activities are popping up all across the country, for those who are not yet familiar with the term it is the act of jumping into a giant ball and rolling down a hill. Doesn’t sound like much fun? Take a look at the bellow video and we sure you will think again! www.zorbing.co.uk

2 – Floatation Experience, A Chilled Day Out!

Looking to unwind and relax this summer? Then the floatation experience is for you! This experience involves floating in either a room or a tank and is supposedly the ultimate way to unwind and distress this summer. Floatation therapy relaxation days are available all over the UK and are usually a lot more affordable than a trip to the all day spa! http://www.virginexperiencedays.co.uk/floatation-experience

This was our favourite pick at Shareagift as it is unlike anything we have looked at before! The Puzzling Place is a large museum filled with different illusion rooms, included in these is an eyelusions exhibition, a hologram gallery and even an anti gravity room! Defiantly well worth a look if you are near the Lake District this summer. www.puzzlingplace.co.uk

(This Summer’s) Top 5 Music Festivals

As we coast into the summer we approach the music festival season, which seems to grow bigger year on year. As much as we would love to spend a weekend in the sun drinking and eating rubbish and listening to our favourite artists, for many of us the price tag that many of the large festival tickets carry these days is just too much to fork out on.

Well no need to fear! Here at Shareagift we believe that everyone should be able to experience a music festival this summer, no matter how much spare cash you have in your wallet! By scanning through some of the webs biggest ticket sites such as Seetickets, Ticketmaster and Gigantic we have complied a list of the ultimate top five money saving festivals of this summer.

5 – Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)

At number five this Dance Festival in Milton Keynes is the most expensive on our list with day tickets starting at £60. However it has an impressive line up with the likes of Sub Focus, Pendulum and Tiesto all appearing this year! Well worth the money if you can stretch to it! www.electricbeachfestival.co.uk

4 – British Summertime Festival

Next on our list is the British Summertime festival in Hyde Park. What we really like about this festival is the fact that it is spread over a number of different weekends, so you can pick and choose your tickets depending on the acts you want to see. This is a lot better than paying top dollar for a festival where you are only bothered about catching a few of your favourite acts. Day tickets start from as little as £55! www.bst-hydepark.com

3 – Wilkestock

At number three is Wilkestock in Hertfordshire, this is an annual charity music festival that has been growing year on year. This years line up has not yet been announced however in the past they have played host to such acts as Bastille and Ms Dynamite! Day tickets can be bought for £50 so keep an eye on this site as the line up is soon to be announced and we are sure it will be a cracker! www.wilkestock.com

2 – Electric Beach Festival

One of the most reasonable festivals we found is the Electric Beach festival in Newquay. This is in the same location as the Boardmasters festival however it is significantly cheaper! Although the acts here are a lot less mainstream and well known it still has the appeal of surfing, beach parties and the fact that you can get your hands on some proper Cornish ice cream! Weekend tickets start at £35! www.electricbeachfestival.co.uk

1 – Fetswich

Finally for those who don’t want to fork out any money at all on ticket prices we have found a free festival in Manchester called Fetswich. This free event spans across a weekend at the end of July and features the best tribute acts from across Europe! This one if defiantly worth a look if you are up in that area of the country and don’t mind not seeing the real thing, after all you can always close your eyes and pretend! www.festwich.com

So there you have it! You can no longer say you missed out this year because of the ticket price, so get saving! Don’t forget here at Shareagift we can help with all your festival planning from raising money for a friends ticket, collecting money together for the car share or saving for that amazing tent that you were jealous of last year. Together we can make this summer the best one yet!
