It is one of the most exciting times in a student’s life- leaving their comfort zones to venture out into the wild and explore new places. Whether it be for some food or drinks, or just shopping at those great British high street stores that you have read about on your blog, Easter weekend nights are always a time where Brits can get together with family and friends without any limits.
The “when is good friday” is a question that has been asked for years. The answer to the question, however, has not changed. Brits have braved the rain for Easter weekend nights out this year.

Last night’s rain did not dampen the enthusiasm of determined revellers throughout the United Kingdom.
People went to city centers to take advantage of the extended weekend.
Many people dressed up in Easter-themed costumes, including rabbit ears and artificial beards in the likeness of Jesus.
For the most part, the Bank Holiday weekend had started off well, with crowded beer gardens and parks.
Temperatures hit 23°C in a ‘heatwave’ that sun-starved Britons referred to as a ‘heatwave.’
For many, though, yesterday night marked a shift in the weather.
Rainstorms in towns like Manchester and Newcastle made for some pretty slick journeys home for partygoers.

In Newcastle, a young guy was seen having a fall as his companion ran over to videotape the incident.
People performed alongside buskers on the city’s streets, and festivities continued on the streets after clubs closed their doors.
In Manchester, partygoers huddled beneath coats as they dashed for cabs and buses back to their homes.
The four-day celebration has been dubbed the first “regular” Easter since the outbreak started.

Meanwhile, police were summoned to a 1000-person Easter Weekend party in Dorset.
Disgruntled residents complained of hearing music from 10 miles away, describing the sound as “rolling tanks and shooting” that kept them up all night.
The ‘heatwave’ of the Easter weekend passed almost as quickly as it came, with many people waking up with hurting heads and freezing toes this morning.
Temperatures are expected to drop this week, according to forecasters.
‘The idea is that temperatures will progressively slide down each day for the next few days throughout the UK,’ said meteorologist Marco Petagna.
‘And then, in the second part of the week, an easterly breeze develops, with more cloud pouring in from the east, some spotty showers, but still plenty of quite dry weather.’
‘However, the tendency is for temperatures to drop, so we’ll be back down to low single digits by Thursday,’ says the forecaster.
