With temperatures set to soar this weekend on the day England kicks off their Euros campaign, what better way to celebrate than by visiting a beer garden.
The hot weather and the start of the European Championships couldn’t come together at a better time, with Mansfield set to bask in highs of 25C on Sunday (June 13).
England will kick off their campaign at 2pm against Croatia, the team which beat them in the World Cup semi final back in 2018.
And pubs across the country will be preparing for a busy weekend, with customers and fans planning to get out and enjoy both the warm weather and the football.
Many pubs across the town have outdoor beer gardens, but a select few also have screens outside which will be broadcasting the big game.
