Bettors hit boozers and open-air restaurants across the UK on the May weekend, a public holiday – the first three-day break for workers since the lockdown was eased.

Revelers from Leeds and Newcastle were out in force until the wee hours of the morning, enjoying the first long weekend since April 12.

While other glam bettors have opted for alcoholic alfresco dining in downtown areas.

With nightclubs still closed, Britons eagerly flocked outside to meet up with friends as alcoholic scenes unfolded across the country.

London’s Soho was packed with punters as many braved the cold spring weather to drink in their groups of six.

The streets were lined with people enjoying pints with their buddies – as many were enjoying a long weekend.

Under current coronavirus rules, you can now find yourself outdoors in groups of six or as part of two households.

The restrictions were relaxed on April 12 in England’s first big step out of the total lockdown, which went into effect in January.

And boozers can now enjoy alfresco dining and drinks – ahead of all indoor hospitality reopening on May 17 according to Boris Johnson’s roadmap.

In Cambridge, hundreds of college students descended on Jesus Green yesterday for one final burst before exams began.

Some spent the long weekend in disguise while others were well prepared – bringing their own tables and chairs to the park.

Meanwhile, London restaurants and pubs were packed as the British braced for a long weekend without work on Monday morning.

Buddies were seen giving each other piggyback rides, while others met with friends after months apart during the lockdown.

And some people were seen stocking up on cans of alcohol – as the party continued in the comfort of their own homes.

It comes after masses of maskless Brits held a non-socially distant open-air music festival in Liverpool over the weekend.

Some 5,000 enthusiastic revelers have arrived at Sefton Park for the pilot event as the UK plans to return to normal as the government pulls the country out of the coronavirus pandemic.

Thousands of buzzing revelers have been photographed bathing the pilot’s atmosphere – one of the first post-lockdown raves to be held in the UK.

The open-air concert was titled by indie band Blossoms and also featured the Lathums and Liverpool singer-songwriter Zuzu.

Participants did not have to wear face coverings or social distancing, but had to pass a lateral flow test 24 hours before the event and produce a negative result in order to release their e-ticket.

They are then asked to take another test five days after the event and submit the results.
