5 of the coolest free things for the weekend

It’s the weekend! Time to let loose and celebrate your freedom – but what to do if you’re strapped for cash but don’t want to suffer a serious case of FOMO? Never fear, we’ve rounded up some great free stuff to make the most of your weekend, on the cheap.

1 – Art Licks

This weekend is Art Licks, a 3-day art collective which aims at celebrating and promoting some of the newest emerging art talent. Happening all over London, this is a must-see 90 space-strong curatorial triumph for art lovers!

2 – Take a stroll

Borough Market is one of my favourite places in London, and even if you don’t buy any of the food on offer, it’s a great place to visit for the amazing sights and cool vibe.

3 – The Line

Clearly I’m feeling a bit artsy today because this is another art recommendation! Check out The Line, London’s new sculptural trail between the O2 and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, featuring the work of the likes of Damien Hirst and many more, this is a must-see, as well as being a pretty lovely walk!

4 – Tastecard

Grab yourself a free trial on your Tastecard and you’ll get money off in a shed-load of restaurants all around you! It’s free to start and it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

5 – Grab yourself a free coffee and pastry from Greggs

Okay, technically not free because it’s when you buy Now Magazine…BUT when you purchase Now, not only do you get all the juicy goodness of their latest issue, but you’ll also be able to nab yourself a free coffee and pastry from Greggs. Who doesn’t love a cheeky danish whilst they peruse their favourite mag?
