Last week is going to take some topping, we had events coming out of our ears, and after a long weekend it can be hard to get back into the swing of things, but summer isn’t over yet and there’s still a lot of stuff to look forward to! We’ve come up with a list of the best ways to beat those bank holiday blues this weekend.

The Dreamboys 2018 UK Tour

The UK’s top male strip show is coming to St. David’s Hall on Saturday night. Admittedly this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but possibly depending on your preferences, this could be a lot of fun. Perfect for fans of Magic Mike and naked men in general. There’s a reason these boys are renowned for what they do.

 

Cardiff City vs Arsenal

It’s been a mixed start to the season for the Bluebirds but there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic. The team performed some good football during their first three games and will be looking to build momentum during the autumn. One of the best things about the club being in the premiership is the prospect of huge clubs coming to play at the Cardiff City Stadium, and this week sees one of the biggest clubs in the league pay us a visit. Arsenal have got some great players and it promises to be a tough and exciting match.
