Hello and welcome to your invaluable guide to the best events, exhibitions and things to do throughout June 2023 in Oxford and across Oxfordshire.
June. Summer festivals, outdoor entertainment, theatrical delights, sporting spectacles, Royal events, and more, June is one of the most lively and exciting months to be in Oxfordshire.
There is a lot to do across Oxfordshire, and it goes without saying that we’ve put in the legwork and pulled together a list of brilliant things to do in Oxford and across Oxfordshire.
As the month progresses, be sure to fit in a festival or two. From music to Shakespeare, food and drink to flowers, and contemporary art, be warned, there’s something or the other happening nearby this month.
Make time for brunch at one of the many local restaurants with outdoor seating, or pack a picnic basket and find yourself a coveted spot at any of our numerous parks, open spaces and nature reserves and other lovely places to enjoy the sun in Oxfordshire.
And if you fancy venturing further afield, consider taking a cultural day trip to London’s west end on a Sunday (the capital city is relatively calmer then) for a matinee in one of London’s theatres.
Need we say again that this is a curated list of things to do in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this June. Take a look at the “What’s on” section, where you’ll find a growing array of events in Oxford and across Oxfordshire, plus unmissable ones beyond the county that would make for a great day out.
