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”
To receive a copy of the sponsorship pack or to discuss our sponsorship opportunities contact the Deputy Town Clerk, Claire Molyneux, at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our events page.
