What’s On: Your Guide To Europes Finest Festivals

 

As we say goodbye to the snowy peaks and icy climes of winter it’s finally time to welcome in the sunshine! Hand in hand with this, for me at least, come the much anticipated fetes, fairs and festivals of summer.

In the UK we celebrate (at least some of us…) the International Festival of Worm Charming, the World Nettle Eating Championships, the annual Yorkshire Pudding Boat Race and, of course, last but not least, Gloucestershire’s Infamous Cheese-Rolling Show.

 

Not at all to diminish from these notoriously British extravaganzas, we’ve put together our favourite hidden gems from across the continent. Some are a little more sophisticated with scrumptious cuisine and Viennese Opera, others, littered with shepherds, folk artists and an appreciation for summer fruits, perhaps a little less. Either way, the landscapes are stunning, the cuisine is phenomenal and the sunshine is always just around the corner.
