Revellers in Leeds and Newcastle were out in full force until the early hours of the morning, enjoying the first long weekend with lockdown restrictions eased.

While other glam punters opted for a boozy al fresco dinner in the city centres.

London’s Soho was packed full of punters as many braved the chilly Spring weather to drink in their groups of six.

According to coronavirus rules which were changed on April 12, you can now meet up outdoors in groups of six or as part of two households.

And boozers can now enjoy outdoor dining and drinking – before the reopening of all indoor hospitality on May 17 according to Boris Johnson’s roadmap.

In Cambridge, hundreds of university students descended to Jesus Green for a final blow out before exams begin.

This comes after masses of maskless Brits have packed out a non-socially distanced outdoor music festival in Liverpool on the weekend.

Some 5,000 excited partygoers arrived at Sefton Park for the pilot event as the UK sets its sights on returning to normality with the government navigating the country out of the coronavirus pandemic.

Thousands of buzzing revellers were pictured lapping up the atmosphere at the pilot – one of the first post-lockdown raves to be held in the UK.

The outdoor gig was being headlined by indie band Blossoms and also featuring The Lathums and Liverpool singer-songwriter Zuzu.


Those who attended did not have to wear face coverings or social distance, but were required to take a lateral flow test 24 hours before the event and produce a negative result in order to release their e-ticket.

They are then asked to take another test five days after the event and submit the results.
