Things to do in London, Birmingham & Edinburgh

Did you know, the average person in the UK spends five hours per week doing the laundry? That’s a lot of sorting, ironing, drying and folding – a lot of time that could be spent having fun or relaxing instead!

Each week we highlight the best things to do in London, Birmingham and Edinburgh with the time you can save when you use Laundrapp to do your laundry and dry cleaning for you. This week, we’ve got a selection of unusual relaxation events to bring an extra dash of stress relief to your weekend.


Want to get a little colourful this Saturday? Then look no further than The Colour Festival, AKA  ‘The Happiest Festival in the World’. Come dressed in white and prepared to chuck coloured powder at each other until you resemble a Haribo sweet. Don’t worry – we can help with your dirty clothes afterwards. Tickets are a bargain at £35 each.



Want to pamper yourself this bank holiday? Then maybe Spa in the City is the thing for you. This pamper-fest is Scotland’s biggest free beauty event with loads of free treatments, samples and beauty enhancers from top retailers. It’s the ideal way to rejuvenate after a busy week at work.



Find your inner child this Sunday with Play Days: The People’s Festival of Play. This free festival includes rounders, British bulldog, hoola-hooping and sack racing. As well as the classics, this playground for adults will also feature a mindfulness workshop and an arts and crafts area.
