Aylesbury Waterside Theatre know how to put on a great panto.  An enchanting family pantomine, Beauty & the Beast will be on stage from 6th Dec 2019 to 5th January 2020.  With an unmissable transformation moment, side-splitting comedy and stunning scenery, this is a must-see, magnificent adventure!

I’ve got some great round ups if you’re looking for a specific type of event and then scroll on down for events by day.

Where to Visit Santa in Buckinghamshire from small community events to mega Santas grotto experiences.

Enjoy the very British tradition of a rip roaring pantomime or family Christmas show in my super duper guide to the best pantos in Buckinghamshire and beyond.

Get into the festive mood with the turning on of the Christmas lights.  Many events have lots of other fun activities for children too.

How about gliding around a real ice rink (or wobbling a bit like Bambi), we’ve got some great ideas for you.  Most places will also have a special penguin or similar for younger kids to hold on to so that they can really enjoy the experience too.
