Find forthcoming events in Buckinghamshire today and this weekend with our easy to use interactive calendar. Whether you're visiting Buckinghamshire or local to the county, be inspired by our selection of entertaining events near you. 

What's on in Buckinghamshire this weekend?

To find out what's on in Buckinghamshire today or this weekend, use the search box above to narrow down your required date. Families on a budget can look out for a generous helping of free events taking place while there are plenty of fun activities for kids to do whether it's during the holidays or a weekend break.

Don't discount the National Trust as a place to visit for family fun events, particularly during school holidays. The magnificent chateau of Waddesdon Manor near Aylesbury and the Capability Brown Stowe Gardens in Buckingham have plenty of events for children with seasonal highlights including Easter, Christmas and Halloween events.

No two visits to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre are the same thanks to a phizz-whizzing gobblefunk of events inspired by the author's well loved novels that even the most hard to please grobblesquirt will enjoy. It's also an ideal location if you're looking for what's on for a rainy day.

Other major events in Buckinghamshire include the Wycombe Arts Festival (May), Marlow Regatta & Festival (June), Buckingham Literary Festival (July), Chiltern Steam Rally (July) and the Buckinghamshire County Show (August).
