Barbie fever has taken over the world, with the blockbuster film on course to make over a billion at the box office. It’s time to embrace all things sparkle and glitter and ride this pink summer wave.

We’ve put together the hottest Barbie events happening in the UK, so come on Barbie, let’s go party!

Rooftop Film Club – Bussey Building London

Barbie Movie PremiereNow you’ve probably seen the Barbie movie already, but if you haven’t (or you’re going again obviously!) make sure to do it in style. The Rooftop Film Club offers the ultimate cinema experience, with scrumptious movie snacks, cocktails (or mocktails) to accompany them and incredible views over London. Ensure to dress up in your best pink outfit and gather all your friends for a plastic-fantastic evening. And what’s more, you can bring your pooch along to enjoy the film too!

Nikki Osborne is Bad Barbie – Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Nikki Osborne is Bad Barbie - Edinburgh Festival FringeAustralian TV personality Nikki Osborne is heading to Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year to bring you Bad Barbie – a hilariously honest stand-up comedy performance. Nikki has been described as a love child between Margot Robbie and Steve Irwin, and recently starred in and produced her own TV show, The Bush Blonde vs. The World. So if you’re looking for some laughs this year at Edinburgh Fringe, this is one not to miss – although beware of strong language (this isn’t one for the kids).

Backyard Cinema – Manchester

Did you hear? Backyard Cinema has a new ‘Miami Beach’ location in Manchester – the perfect place to watch this Summer’s biggest movie! You can sit back and relax on the sand with a cocktail in hand as you watch Ken and Barbie conquer the real world on screen. Given that Ken’s most recent occupation was simply described as ‘beach’, there couldn’t be a more suitable location to enjoy the film!

Roller Dome – Liverpool

Roller DiscoGet set to live out your ‘Hot Skating Barbie’ fantasy at Roller Dome Liverpool. Dress up in your best Barbie fit, preferably an all-neon look if you want to replicate Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling on Venice Beach, and set the roller dome on fire with your dance moves! Don’t worry if you don’t have your own roller skates, it’s £2.50 to hire skates and all the protective padding equipment you may need.

London Doll Meet – Southwark

Barbie Doll Collectors MeetupThe 2023 premiere of Barbie the movie has brought all the Barbie doll collectors out of the woodwork, and what better way to connect than at the London Doll Meet. Every month the Bunch of Grapes pub in Southwark holds a Doll Meet event for collectors. Whilst this isn’t strictly a Barbie event (Sindy’s and Bratz are welcome too) we have a feeling amongst the recent Barbie buzz there will be many pink plastics in attendance.
