Great things to do in Buckinghamshire this weekend: art exhibitions, walks, concerts, theatre, places to visit and other events and ideas.
Details of events correct at time of publishing.
Rik Van Den Bosch - Friday 26 May
The Stables, Stockwell Lane, Wavendon
Rik writes, sings and plays his own songs on his acoustic guitar, drawing from a wide influence of styles: original folk and blues sounds from way back, 60’s rock ’n’ roll grooves, and up-to-the-minute pure rock rhythms - with a bit of gypsy and Spanish influence thrown in for good measure.
Evita - Friday 26 May
Milton Keynes Theatre, 500 Marlborough Gate
Following its smash hit run at London’s Dominion Theatre, Bill Kenwright’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita is set to thrill audiences once again across the UK.
Bank Holiday Weekend Vintage Steam Cruises - Saturday 27 to Monday 29 May
Bourne End Marina
Enjoy the perfect River Thames experience this May bank holiday weekend aboard the carbon neutral 1883 steam launch ‘Alaska’.
Roman Gladiators - Sunday 28 and Monday 29 May
Chiltern Open Air Museum
If you’re looking for a great educational half term day out for the family then come and see our Roman Gladiators battle! Watch provincial gladiators in action as a team of criminals, barbarians and other prisoners of war, disgraced soldiers and thrill seekers fight for the entertainment of the crowds and the Emperor.
Open Garden - Sunday 28 May
Burrow Farm, Hambledon
Burrow Farm and the adjacent cottages (not open) are part Tudor and part Elizabethan, set in the Chilterns above Hambleden Valley where it meets the Thames. Views of pasture and woodlands across the ha-ha greatly enhance the setting. Special features are the parterre, arboretum and C15 barn, where home-made teas will be served.
Denham Village Fayre - Monday 29 May
Village Road, Denham
Bank Holiday Monday sees this fayre which has its roots in the 15th century when a charter fair and market was held. The event based around Cheapside Lane raises money for the upkeep of St Mary’s Church and sees Village Road closed as a host of traditional attractions and entertainment take place. With food, a fairground and music, it attracts people from miles around.
