Buckingham Fringe Week; Get Involved!

Buckingham Town Council is gearing up for this year’s Fringe Week which will take place between Saturday 20th July and Sunday 28th July 2024. The theme year is Totally Buckingham with a focus on celebrating the wonderful cultural and community diversity of Buckingham.

The Council is currently looking for businesses or groups based in Buckingham who are, or thinking of, putting on an arts, sports, music, or culture event during Fringe Week and would like to take part. Ideas of events that fit the theme could include trails, talks, book clubs, food tasting, sports events, open mic nights, history tours, craft workshops, silent discos – the only limit is your imagination!

There are lots of advantages in getting involved with Buckingham Fringe. As well as contributing to a fun-packed week for the whole community, the Town Council will help promote your event. For those signing up before Monday 20th May, your event details and group or business logo will be printed in the Buckingham Fringe guides, which are delivered to more than 6,000 homes in Buckingham, as well as event advertising and coverage on social media.

Want to be involved but aren’t sure how or need to find a venue? We can help you contact local organisations who might be willing to work together on an event. Already paired up in 2024 for a new event is The King’s Head Gin Bar, which will be hosting a Disco Bingo with Buckingham’s Equality, Community Diversity & Inclusion Group on Friday 26th July. Another pairing is for The Grand Junction, who will host a Drag Night starring Sandy Flaps on Thursday 25th July.

This year’s Fringe also includes familiar favourites the Family Fun Day, an uproarious Comedy Night, Buckingham Play Days in the park, getting creative with Art in the Market, and a performance from the Oxford Fiddle Group. New this year are performances from folk and contemporary artists Gracenotes, a Totally Me: Totally Buckingham town centre community art takeover, Disco Bingo, and Drag Night!

Chairman of the Town Centre & Events Committee, Cllr. Robin Stuchbury said: “We are pleased to put on Buckingham Fringe Week for another year. The purpose of this week of events is to bring the community together whilst benefitting the wider community, and villages surrounding Buckingham. Please take the opportunity to signal if you wish to be involved; we look forward to hearing from you.”

If you are an organisation based in Buckingham holding an event during that time and would like it to be part of the Buckingham Fringe Week, please contact the office, via admin@buckingham-tc.gov.uk with details of your event.
