A Good Weekend is the one weekend in the year to spend less money shopping and instead enjoy spending more time with old and new friends, doing something fun together.
Between March 17-20th 2017 we celebrated International Day Of Happiness by bringing together the most comprehensive listings - ever - of things to do, rather than things to buy! Watch out for next years special weekend, 16th - 19th March 2018.
Through the site, and our partners, you can share time doing something great outdoors, laugh at a comedy show, experience a concert, make art, stretch your mind or book a visit or a break… It’s all on A Good Weekend.
There are thousands of activities! Many FREE and many with great discount offers or money can’t buy competition prizes.
It's super simple to get involved - just check out the activities, invite some friends and book your perfect idea of A Good Weekend. Do More, Spend Less. Enjoy #AGoodWeekend.
