Celebrate Buckingham Day

The Celebrate Buckingham Day is our first in person event after lockdown and we’re delighted to be able to get together with the community to celebrate.

Celebrate Buckingham Day is being held with the Buckingham Society and, for the first time ever, will incorporate the robing of the Mayor, Cllr Margaret Gateley and Buckingham Civic Day prize giving.

Stalls from local community, voluntary and social enterprise groups will sit alongside fun activities including bouncy castle, bungee runs, tennis, bowls, cadet games. You can even test just how squeamish you are and have a try at maggot racing!

Live entertainment will include the Ukulele Group and Brackley Morris Men.
