As we wave goodbye to February and step into March, we’re all starting to gear up for all the wild festivals coming our way. But, as much as we can't wait for festival season to kick off, we can’t sit here waiting for the summer. We need to be out there, having a laugh, hitting the dance floor, and maybe occasionally embarrassing ourselves by chatting rubbish to strangers in the smoking area. It’s good for the soul. 

Wondering what’s on in March? As always, we’re here to help you find the best events going down across the UK this month. Alongside raves, festivals, and music events, we’ve also got an abundance of killer events, such as theatre shows to keep everyone happy. 

So let’s not mess about. Here are the best events in March 2023.
