The Bargain Hunter: Make it showtime this Bank Holiday

 

The August Bank Holiday is upon us, and how better to celebrate than with a spot of bargain hunting? As the UK weather can rarely be guaranteed, why not make the most of your Monday off work with a fantastic family day out?

Visit London is offering a host of discounts on top-rated shows, with 55 per cent off tickets for Blood Brothers and Stomp, and 20 per cent off tickets to every kid's (and many adults') favourite; Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain.

Hot deals if your kids are curry-lovers

No bank holiday would be complete without a slap-up meal. Luckily, feeding the whole family this weekend needn't cost a fortune. Until 18 September, children will eat completely free at Masala Zone, a Londonwide chain of stylish Indian restaurants. Visit http://ind.pn/PaUtzo for further details.

Stay-at-homes can save on their DIY

If curry and theatre aren't your bag, worry not. There are plenty of other bargains to be had. If your weekend plans are more DIY than Fame, head over to Homebase for a whole host of half-price offers on selected lighting and wallpaper, and 20 per cent off flooring. The offer runs while stocks last, with a full list of discounted items available here: http://ind.pn/PaUKlU.

HMV discount DVDs are a Bourne winner

Worn-out yet? Why not stick on a DVD and relax? HMV (remember it?) has a range of summer film discounts, with blockbusters like Twilight, the Bourne films and War Horse available for as little as £8. Personally, I'd recommend picking up the Bourne: Ultimate Collection box set, which includes the Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum films.

PizzaExpress is delivering a discount

This week's best printable discount coupon comes via PizzaExpress and entitles customers to three courses for £12.95 when eating in. For more information or to print the coupon, visit PizzaExpress.com/latest-offers.
