What’s on this weekend…
We know how tempting it can be to spend the entire weekend snuggled in bed, surrounded by a fort of hot water bottles, drinking tea and eating biscuits – we too have admitted defeat and invested in electric blankets here at Sassy HQ. But let’s not let the dreary forecast get us down, it’s Fri-yay after all! Put on your warmest coat, your sturdiest pair of wellies and embrace the elements, there are great events in store…

If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of in Honkers it’s music festivals! Okay, so we don’t quite have our own Glastonbury, but with the recent weather, we’re half way there, right? So fish out those wellies (oh yes, it’s forecasted to rain) and head over to Disco-bay and celebrate Picnic in the Park‘s 10th Anniversary! The festival is set to see huge crowds flocking to the island for a day of live music, performances and fabulous food. The event’s being hosted in aid of raising funds for Hong Kong children’s charities: The Hong Kong Student Aid Society and Hong Chi Children’s Home – so let’s brave the elements for a great day and an even better cause, girls.
