What’s on in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this September

Hello and welcome to your invaluable guide to the best events, exhibitions and things to do in Oxford and across Oxfordshire throughout September.

It may officially be the end of summer, but the British Autumn may yet surprise us with some spectacular sunny spells. If that turns out to be the case, then make the best of it with brunch at one of Oxfordshire’s best restaurants with outdoor seating or afternoon tea in a country house within easy reach.

From comedy to concerts, funfairs to country fairs, there’s something in stock for everyone in Oxfordshire this September. And if you fancy venturing further afield, consider a cultural day trip to London’s west end for a weekend matinee in one of the London’s theatres (the capital city is relatively calmer then) .

Nevertheless, this is a curated list of things to do in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this September. 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.

Got an event that should be on the list? List your event on The Oxford Magazine website and reach our growing audience of people who live, work or place in Oxfordshire. Once again, welcome to your invaluable guide to what’s on in Oxford and across Oxfordshire this September.

PS: We’re glad to see the return of BunkFest 2022 after last year’s cancellation.
