The next full moon is on May 29th and is called the Flower Moon.
It will rise at around 21:15 in the South East.
If you manage to catch a full moon as it rises above the horizon it will appear to look much bigger. The video to the right (further down the page on a mobile) explains why!

The next offical Supermoon isn’t until 21st Jan 2019!
The scientific name for a Supermoon is Perigee Full Moon. A Supermoon occurs when the full moon is at the closest point of its orbit to the Earth. The Moon will look much closer and brighter.
The Supermoon is normally best viewed as it rises. The best time to view it is when it is just rising, as it will appear to look much larger.
