This year the West End Festival will take place between Friday 3 rd of June and Sunday 26 th June. Whether its music, meditation, kids activities, walking, talks, beer tasting or pretty much anything else, there is something for everyone.

So far we have been lucky to have such excellent weather and long may it continue as we experience all that the festival has to offer.

With so much going on choosing the highlights for this weekend was not easy. Here are my top picks for what to get involved in this weekend – Saturday 11 th June and Sunday 12 th June at the West End Festival 2016:
