We always feel a little bit guilty when a lot of the events we talk about are so London-centric – but we feel like that’s all about to change as more and more alcohol-free or low-alcohol events and options pop up across the UK (and globally). One region that we’ve noticed is really helping us to lead the way, is the South West of England, so we’ve rounded up all of the going’s on over the next couple of months into one handy to-do list for you:
Feeling Groovy‘s “Conscious Club Night” is on the 2nd June from 7.30pm to 11 pm at Hamilton House in Bristol.
You can expect: Dance music, cakes, booze-free drinks, and a festival atmosphere to keep you going for the night. Book here.
Our pal at Wise Bartender will be taking his alcohol-free bar to two events this month, so you’re guaranteed some delicious drinks options suitable for you at both events.
