The crowds and (eventually) the sun came out in force last week for this year’s instalment of the Buckingham BandJam “Big Bash” music festival held once more on Market Hill.
Organised by the BandJam Group, headed for the first time by local resident Aaron Finch, and primarily funded by Buckingham Town Council, a fantastic line-up of musicians and bands played a mixture of genres to cater for a wide range of musical tastes.
A variety of local food and drink stalls were also on hand to keep everyone fed and watered.
Buckingham also hosted a planned flying visit from the National Chopper Club with some 500+ motorbikes parading into town, stopping to meet, eat and listen to the sounds emanating from the stage.
Cllr. Stuchbury, Chair of Buckingham Town Council’s Town Centre and Events Committee, said: “Thanks to everybody working together we had another successful Buckingham Big Bash music festival in our town centre, visited by several hundred motor bikers in addition to the very large crowd throughout the day. All the musicians were equally entertaining. The PA and Road Crew worked throughout the day to ensure a good quality sound, and our thanks also go to Three B’s radio for broadcasting the event live worldwide.
None of this would be possible without cooperation between our community partners, the Town Centre & Events Committee’s commitment and investment into this event and the dedication of our officers and ground staff in ensuring the event takes place safely within our town centre.
We hope everyone attending this year’s event was able to have a good time with their family and friends and look forward now to planning for next year!”
