After a year of shouting 'you're on mute' and the best a celebration gets being a warm beer on a cold bench, we're SO ready to get back to the Indytute's roots and start spending some time together. 

That's why this year - and every year to be honest - we're championing the one thing Dad'll really want for Father's Day - time with you. 

Added bonus, you're buying him a gift, but you get to go on a day out. Win, win.

Here are our favourite Dad friendly days out and a couple of home kits for those of you not quite ready to head out into the city lights just yet.


Give. Me. Cheese

If your Dad usually gets a cheap and cheesy Father's Day card and that's his lot, we dare you to upgrade him to the easiest cheesiest day out instead - you've probably not seen him for the best part of a year, he deserves it!

In our Give. Me. Cheese experience, you and Dad'll be treated to at least 2.5 hours of decadent cheesy fun, sampling your way through 3-5 stops of Camden's finest camembert (and other cheeses). Find a grater experience, we'll wait.

Think Dad would rather enjoy some cheese and wine from the comfort of his own home? Try our At Home: Wine & Cheese kit.


Mini Neon Workshop at God's Own Junkyard

Okay, okay, we might have gone a little past the day's of Dad sticking your artwork on the fridge, but what about a Neon creation you've made together?

Not only is the Mini Neon Workshop at God's Own Junkyard - a day out in itself, but he'll come home with a unique Neon squiggle guaranteed to make his eyes light up and bring a smile to his face as he thinks of you for years to come. Aww.

A squiggle not enough? We've now got new dates in our diary for our full Neon Workshops too.


Whisky Lovers Tour and Tasting

Did you get a love of a wee dram of the hard stuff from your father? If so, the Whisky Lovers Tour and Tasting is the perfect Father's Day gift for you to enjoy together. 

Get welcomed to the first whisky, gin and vodka distillery in East London in over 110 years with a delicious cocktail before embarking on a 1.5 hour tour of the brewery and distillery where you'll sample 5 whiskies of the world.

Dad more of a gin man? Not ready to head into the big city yet? Mezcal more your style? Try our Spirit of Gin Tour & Tasting, our At Home: Japanese Whisky Masterclass or our At Home: Mezcal Masterclass.


Classic Mini Cooper Gin Bar Experience

Iconic car, iconic drink, iconic Father's Day gift. 

You, your Dad (and one other if you like) are picked up by your highly trained, highly hilarious local guide and designated driver for the night. They'll escort you to at least three of the best gin bars and a distillery, where you'll be treated to a gin-tastic delight and some local history at each stop. 

Italian Job, eat your heart out/ It's got nothing on our Classic Mini Cooper Gin Bar Experience when it comes to style!


At Home: Curry Club

If you or Dad are still feeling the stay at home vibes, we've got the perfect treat for Father's Day at home. Schedule in dinner with Dad once a month for the next three months - the best bit, he has to cook (you're on dishes duty though, sorry, we don't make the rules)!

With our Curry Club subscription he'll get a themed box to feed four with all the pre-measured spices and the recipe he'll need to whip up something new and exciting for curry night. 

A new box'll arrive every month for three months. A Father's Day gift that'll have him thinking of you until at least Autumn.
