This is the weekend for...recapturing your youth

With all those 17- and 18-year-olds out celebrating their A-level results, or drowning their sorrows – and in anywhere with a nightclub open tonight you won't be able to avoid them – this is the weekend for getting back the heady feel of your own teenage highs and lows.

One way of doing it would be to head with the rest of the jeunesse doreé (or not so dorée) to the V Festival at its twin sites in Chelmsford, Essex, and Weston Park, Staffordshire, and catch acts like Kasabian, or superstar French DJ David Guetta, as long as you don't mind paying £120 for the ticket and seven quid for a burger. Or you could simply go down memory lane, like the present writer, and sneak into a pub for a half of cider and a packet of plain crisps to celebrate your A-level 3 Bs and a C. (But it meant something in those days I tell you!)
