At Yuup we’ve got a load of fun and wallet-friendly activities to help you have a joyous January, so take a look and see what takes your fancy. 

Experiences in Bristol to beat the January blues

Belly Laughs Comedy Festival

Belly Laughs Comedy Festival is back in Bath for 2024!

Enjoy a month of surprise comedy performers and great indie food in Bath, all in the name of supporting local and chosen charity Julian House.

You can enjoy comedy and food from venues such as Kingsmead Street Bottle, the Moorfields and The Coconut Treet, with prices starting from just £10 per ticket


Wake the Tiger: After Hours

Wake the Tiger: After Hours is the ultimate bonkers night out for you and your friends! 

Described as a realm where anything is possible, where you can unleash your inner tiger and experience the magic and wonder of two incredible worlds, Wake The Tiger is home to multiple themed rooms, each one a unique portal into creativity and imagination.

This 18+ event is the perfect opportunity to explore the park at your own pace, discover every wonderful corner and get some incredible (and hilarious) photographs. You’ll also enjoy exclusive access to the Guildhall Café Bar with access until 11pm: the perfect evening out in Bristol.


Pour Decisions Wallet Friendly Wine Tastings

'Pour Decisions', is a small and social wine tasting, held fortnightly on Wednesdays at KASK, the gorgeous bar and garden on North Street.

The team at KASK will select your first glass, then for the following glasses they'll offer you two contrasting options.

KASK's knowledgeable but not-stuffy team will talk to you about the wine, the wine maker, the grape, the region the wine is from, and why they love the glass they've just poured you.


Haunted and Hidden Bristol Walking Tour

Suitable for all ages, this fully outdoor fun and informative walk combines haunted buildings, TV and film locations plus some Bristol fun facts.

You'll discover our city's hidden past - and some unforgettable stories. Hear about the 17th century pub with a poltergeist, the UK's most haunted cinema and a former market building with a ghostly fireplace figure! There will be plenty of hidden secrets revealed about many of Bristol's iconic buildings as well, as you walk around the oldest part of the city.


Games Night at the Bristol Improv Theatre

From solving riveting riddles to giggling at guessing games, and acting out murder mystery charades, you can let your competitive side run wild with your friends at this games night.

Throughout the evening, your hilarious hosts will dish out points for the most creative, competitive and completely barmy endeavours. All of our games can be played at your table amongst your team. We’ll never force you to perform for the crowd, unless you want to!


Seasonal Veg Illustration Workshop

Want to learn about seasonable ingredients? Fancy making beautiful illustrations for your home? Whether you're an experienced artist or illustrator, or an absolute beginner - everyone and anyone is welcome to this workshop!

Bristol creative Jess Knights likes to keep her workshops informal and relaxed - so feel free to grab a drink of your choice and get comfy.


Yoga for Men

Almost half of men are dealing with stress or anxiety, and yoga and breathing exercises have been shown to help men deal with both better.

PBE Yoga provides a space for men to come together, practise yoga and unwind.

Book your Yoga for Men tickets.


'Breathe!' Gentle & Restorative Breathwork & Yoga

With so much stimulation sometimes you just need to slow things down and let your mind and body rest, and January is the perfect time for it.
