THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING WITH YOUR TIME IN APRIL

April 7-9

Rev up and rally  
Belfast, Northern Ireland

Last year almost 80,000 people travelled to the Circuit of Ireland Rally, and 30 million watched from their living rooms as the action unfolded at the only British or Irish leg of the European Rally Championship. This year the hallowed asphalt is also part of the British Rally Championship for the first time since 1991, when the race was won by legend Colin McRae

Step it up 
Maryhill Locks, Glasgow

Imagine a 420m sprint swim. Uphill. With steep climbs and obstacles. In Scottish temperatures. Yet 150 open water swimmers will make this test a reality at Red Bull Neptune Steps, as they fight to be the first to make it from the bottom to the top of Glasgow’s locks.

Act of God 
In cinemas

Blasphemous Belgian comedy The Brand New Testament opens in cinemas today. The film hilariously combines God, gorillas and moral guidance to tell the tale of a morally corrupt lord who lives in Brussels. Luckily, his daughter takes matters into her own hands.
