South East England

Events in the South East

Stuck for ideas of what to do in South East England? South East England hosts thousands of exciting events all year so see what's happening local to you in our upcoming events calendar.

From the multiple award winning Bestival  and Walking Festival on the Isle of Wight, the Festival Theatre at Hever Castle in Kent, fabulous Henley Festival in Oxfordshire, the all-action Loxwood Joust and slightly crazy Worthing International Birdman Festival in Sussex, to the thrill of the Festival of Speed and the nostalgia of Goodwood Revival near Chichester.

Upcoming Events in February

February is a busy month for events, not least due to half term holidays with plenty to keep the kids entertained. Children can learn while having fun too at the month-long Brighton Science Festival and Cancer Research UK is hosting a day of events in Oxford for World Cancer Day including a world record attempt that everyone can take part in.

Chinese New Year celebrations are taking place in Brighton while in Portsmouth, the Charles Dickens Birthplace Museum has a special free opening on the weekend of his birth. Shrove Tuesday sees children and adults take to the streets with our pick of pancake races taking place in Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight and Guildford in Surrey.

Nobody will need reminding that Valentine's Day falls in the middle of February and with an abundance of special events across the region, so there's no excuse not to push the boat out. And don't forget that 2016 is a leap year so what will you spend your extra day doing?
