Buckingham’s new, free, public art trail is now live! Following on from a swan-tastic launch event on Saturday, 24th June, you can now admire ten selfie-sized painted swan sculptures, each with their own story to share when you visit Buckingham this summer.
Cllr Ade Osibogun, the Deputy Town Mayor, and Buckingham’s Town Crier officially opened the trail together and thanked all the sponsors and artists involved. Town Council staff were on hand to engage with passers-by about the trail and the opportunities it will bring for local people and town centre businesses. Young creatives thoroughly also enjoyed decorating swan-shaped biscuits and eating them.
Bringing colour and fun to the town, the Swan Trail is on now and will run for ten weeks, finishing on September 3rd, offering everyone an enjoyable day out during the school holidays.
Councillor Robin Stuchbury, chair of Town Centre & Events committee said “The collaboration between the Town Council and the Community Board, who provided additional financial support, has been a truly rewarding decision. But most importantly thanks to all the sponsors and artists for their support and involvement. Committee members expressed how good it is to see such a range of different organisations working together. I look forward to the community using this free attraction and I personally hope all residents and visitors enjoy this experience.”
