The village has a pub, primary school, a sports pavilion and there is an M&S Simply Food and Tesco close by.
The prestigious Stables Theatre is in Wavendon and was founded by jazz greats John Dankworth and Cleo Laine in 1970. Today it hosts live music concerts featuring international artists. Your local pub, The Wavendon Arms, is famed for its food, while the Wavendon Gate Pavilion and cricket ground hosts bowls, athletics, cricket and karate clubs and pre-school sessions.
