Here at UK PokerNews we're sure you are already thinking about the mouth watering 4 day weekend that is on its way. It's time to eat a lot of chocolate, stay out later than we normally do and pine like a wounded puppy when the return to work is imminent. With an extended weekend ahead of us, many would like to tread the boards with a bit of live poker, being as we are allowed to stay up past our bedtimes. So here is our guide to some of the big festivals nearby this Easter weekend.
