Events in September

Looking for events in September? You’ve come to the right place.

Although we still usually get good weather, the shortening days are becoming more noticeable. We’re faced with slightly cooler, wetter weather than over the summer months and the kids go back to school.

September really spells the end of summer but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to do!

So, here are 10 things to do in September in the UK as chosen by Tanith and Ben.

Date: 17th September 2022
