As our (nearly) post-pandemic life gently moves into a new state of normality, it's exciting to think that events, exhibitions and productions just might go ahead this year without being postponed or cancelled (touch wood!)
If you're on the hunt for unique or fun things to do during March, then we're hoping we've got something on our list for you. Whether you're looking forward to visiting the fleeting crocus carpet at Kew Gardens, or perhaps you're keen on visiting an independent sale or market, then we've got it covered.

For those who love an antiques market, Ardingly Antiques & Collectors Fair returns with its 2-day market from 1st-2nd March. Tickets cost £20 on Tuesday or £5 on Wednesday. Here's hoping the rain holds off!
