Things to do in Hampshire August

I live for exploring, finding fun events, travel and great food. And, if you’re here, I’m guessing you do too.

Each month I share this guide, a what’s on for the upcoming month. It’s full of inspiration and events to bring joy to your down time.

I like everything from the arts to music to foraging and water sports so you’ll find a diverse range of suggestions in this list. It’s not going to cover every event, just a handful of interesting things you might not have heard about.

Since the start of 2022 I’ve issued my monthly guide to what’s on across Hampshire – before then it was purely on Instagram.

These ideas are to help you have an excellent weekend and perhaps get you to try something a little different or experience something new.
