The cream of talent from the immediate area and further afield took to the stage in a nine hour music marathon which saw Trash Can Rocket as the opening act and music from The High Jinks, Henry and Mike with their vintage rock covers, new folk artist Marian Wedley, rock and blues band Inside Out and a half-time treat with steel band The Havana Boys among others.

Music lovers took the opportunity to dance and enjoy the food on offer at this family event.

Robin Stuchbury, chairman of the town council’s town centre and events committee, said there were around 1,000 people there on the day.

He said: “It was a wonderful sight to see toddlers running in and out of the crowd, bopping to the music all afternoon then in the evening, the teenagers came out and romped around the stage.

“There was a mix of music all day from folk to rock to alternative music ending with local rock band The High Jinks when most of the youths and ageing teenagers were down the front dancing away. The British weather was kind to us.”

He added this was the eleventh year the Buckingham Acoustic Club and the town council had worked together to organise a fun and safe event.

Band Jam will be holding its Big Bash in the town centre on August 28.
