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.

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.

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.
