6 Awesome Things To Do In Guernsey This August Bank Holiday Weekend
Here are great ideas for what to do on the late bank holiday weekend for the whole family from outdoor cinema to caveman exploration, music and more on Saturday 29, Sunday 30 and Monday 31 August.
Outdoor cinema at Cobo
If you love movies, head down to the Sure Big Screen at Cobo. Lots of great films are being shown in the great outdoors – including movies for children, big kids and classics.
On Saturday, Planes 2: Fire & Rescue (PG) is being shown at 2.30pm followed by What We Did On Our Holiday (12A) at 5.15pm and then the Oscar-winning The Theory of Everything (12) at 7.30pm.
On Sunday, fans of Frozen (PG) will love the sing-a-long showing at 11am. Paddington the movie (PG) is up at 12.45pm. And then it’s The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (PG) at 7.30pm.
On Bank Holiday Monday, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (PG) will show at 2.30pm. The Wizard of Oz (PG) will be showing at 5.15pm and then the classic The Italian Job (1969) (PG) at 7.30pm.

Okay, so this kinda cool. Have a look around Guernsey’s ancient monuments. Experts and volunteers from Guernsey museums will be on hand at each of the selected dolmens on Saturday, Sunday (no archaeologists) and Monday afternoon.
Interested, meet at La Déhus from 2pm on Saturday. On Sunday, it’s a walking tour covering Le Creux es Fai’es and Le Trépied – just meet at Lihou carpark for a 2pm start. On Monday meet at La Varde from 2pm.
Children can complete a Fete des Dolmens passport by picking up a stamp and answering questions in the 3 different locations. Pop your card into Candie or hand it to an archaeologist on the last day – you could win a Guernsey Museums goody bag. The passport will be available to download from the museums website soon.

Clear out at home – and putting things into storage!!!
The long bank holiday weekend is the ideal opportunity to do all those jobs you might have not had time to do.
