Just because you’re working while you’re in the UK, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have time to enjoy yourself and travel round the country taking in the sights and meeting new friends.
If you’re a music fan then a great way of spending your free time is to go to one of the many festivals that happen around the UK throughout the summer months. The UK is famous for its eclectic music scene and these festivals are a great showcase for both major and up and coming artists. It’s also a great way for you to relax and meet a whole host of like-minded people.
Here are just some of the festivals you won’t want to miss whilst on a UK Working Holiday.
Of course we couldn’t talk about festivals without mentioning the iconic Glastonbury. Set in the beautiful Somerset hills, this is one of Britain’s longest running, and most talked-about festivals pulling in some of the biggest names in music. Come armed with an open-mind and a pair of wellies and you won’t go far wrong!
