Here are a few fun things to keep you busy this summer if you aren't a football fan and want to avoid the World Cup.

Latitude Festival

Latitude 2018 takes place from Thursday July 12 through to Sunday July 15. If you prefer music to Messi, then be sure to tune into the media coverage. If you’re lucky enough to be attending the festival in person then you’re in for an amazing few days of live bands, comedy, and food.

Yarmouth Air Show

The weekend of June 16 and 17 will see planes – not footballs – flying through the air, with aerial displays taking place between 1pm and 5pm. More that 175.000 people are expected to attend the show, organised by the Greater Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement area. For more info visit:


If tennis is your choice of sport rather than football then you’re bound to enjoy Wimbledon 2018. The tournament takes place between July 2 and July 15, and if you can’t make it in person then there will be plenty of TV coverage. Stock up on the strawberries and cream now!

The Incredibles 2

People have been waiting for an Incredibles sequel for more than 10 years. The first film was released in 2004, but from July 13 you can finally go along to the cinema and catch The Incredibles 2. This one’s a real family friendly crowd-pleaser, and will give you the chance to get out of the sun for a bit and sip a slushie.

The Norfolk Show

The annual Norfolk show has plenty to offer for those wanting to get out and about this summer. With horticulture shows, live stock, quad displays, and plenty of food stands, you won’t be stuck for football-free activities. The show takes place, as usual, on The Norfolk Showground between June 27 and 28.

Bring your dog to work day

If nothing else on this list sounds like fun, surely this last one does. On June 22 employees across the nation will be invited to bring their pet pals to work to raise money for dog welfare charities. Make sure your place of work is aware of the event and happy to have your dog on board before you bring them along, we wouldn’t want to see any disappointed pooches sent home!
