Encompassing music, dance, education and history with a generous helping of FREE fun for all the family.

From, all day live music concerts with its roots firmly in the 70’s Friars Club, which started right here in Aylesbury and featured performers like Queen, The Who and David Bowie; to bringing a touch of seaside laughter to a town that is reputably the “furthest from the sea” and an exhilarating Soapbox Derby which takes place on Father’s Day.

Here’s what’s already happened in 2017

St. George’s Celebration and Scout Parade

A celebration of England’s patron saint St George was held in Aylesbury on Sunday 23rd April, 2017.

It was a day steeped in traditional English history and culture, dowsed in good-old family fun and entertainment.  The ever popular Morris dancing took place in the centre of Market Square, performed by Aldbury Morris.  Children (of all ages) tried their hands at archery, sword fighting and even learn the skills required to be a successful jouster.   Arrows were forged on an open fire and many took part in a traditional Mummers Play.   Children from the local primary school, Thomas Hickman, did battle with our larger than life St George.  Lots of games, arts, crafts and a colouring competition was held, alongside pottery painting and crafts from the experts from the Queens Park Arts Centre, there really was lots of fun and entertainment for all the family.

The annual scout parade left Market Square at 2:45pm, led by The Amersham Marching Band, St George and the school dragon with over 200 Scouts, the Mayor, Town Clerk and many dignitaries, including the High Sheriff and Deputy Lord Lieutenant joining in, marching to St Mary’s Church, for the annual affirmation service.  Before returning to market square to be formally dismissed by the District Commissioner.
