Celebrate Buckingham Day

After a great first event last summer, Celebrate Buckingham is coming back on Thursday 2nd June 2022 from 11am-3pm in Bourton Park to kick start the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations that the Town Council have organised.

Stalls from local community, voluntary and social enterprise groups will sit alongside fun activities including a bouncy castle, bungee run and cadet games. You can even test just how squeamish you are and have a try at maggot racing! There will also be a Jubilee Dress through the Ages contest that you can enter on the day.

Some great food and drink vendors will be attending so make sure to save plenty of room for lunch:

Live entertainment will include the Buckingham Ukulele Group and Winslow Concert Band. A doodle artist and face painter will also be attending to capture the day and to have some jubilee fun.
