Throughout the year Buckingham Town Council arranges a number of exciting events such as the Fringe Week, River Rinses, Bonfire and Fireworks and the Christmas Light Switch-On. These events are attended by and enjoyed by thousands of local people.
To make these events even better, The Buckingham Town Council are looking to work with local businesses who are looking to raise their local profile.
The new sponsorship pack has options to suit businesses of all sizes and sectors. The Council are also open to discussion and very keen to explore new ideas.
Alan Edmeades, Landlord of The Woolpack in Buckingham, said “Working with Buckingham Town Council is a pleasure. The team are very pro-active in promoting the town as a destination by organising events and activities for the community. As a local business it is important to support these events.”
Councillor Terry Bloomfield, Chairman of the Town Centre and Events Committee said, “It would be great to hear from local businesses who want to find ways of supporting the local community”

Over 1,100 people used the Buckingham Town pop-up synthetic skating rink which was operating in the town centre for nine days ending on Sunday. All money from ticket sales and sponsorship helped to fund the event, meaning the final cost to the Town Council was £676.
1,153 tickets were sold, with skaters using the rink between 3pm and 9pm.
The event team running the rink commented that Buckingham is the most friendly place they have worked in.
MK Lightning Ice Hockey Team supported the rink by sending Pucky the Polar Bear along with players to encourage skaters.
Committee Chairman, Cllr Terry Bloomfield said “The event was a great success; hundreds of families were drawn into the town centre where they used the shops and restaurants. They had lots of fun and made the town centre feel vibrant and Christmassy. At a final cost to the council of £676 the skating rink represented excellent value for money. We are always keen to receive feedback from residents, in this case it would be great to know whether there would be support for providing the ice rink next year, or if there are ideas for other events the Town Council could try in the future.”
