There’s a chance to celebrate your town by taking part in ‘the biggest choir ever assembled in Buckingham town centre’ at the fourth annual Buckingham Civic Day on Saturday, June 20.

Buckingham Society members are inviting people to join them outside the Old Gaol at 10.30am to celebrate Buckingham in a mass sing-along.

Anyone can be involved – young, old and in between.

The aim is to have fun, so the Buckingham Society is hoping lots of people will go along and join in to make the event a great success.

Entertainment will be provided by Glee Club UK Buckingham, who will sing a number of songs in their own inimitable way and lead the audience in singing the song Proud.

Everybody there will be taught the song so they can join in to show their pride in Buckingham.

Also on the day, MP for Buckingham and Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow will be on hand to present the Buckingham Rotary Citizen of the Year and Young Citizen of the Year Awards.

Chairman of the Buckingham Society Roger Edwards said: “Buckingham is a great place to live and singing is good for you so this will be a brilliant opportunity for local people to come out once again, enjoy themselves, have a good sing song and show how proud they are of their town.

“We hope that people will turn out in large numbers to celebrate Civic Day and be part of the largest choir ever assembled in Buckingham town centre.

“We are very grateful to the Destinat ion Buckingham Group and Aylesbury Vale District Council for their support in putting on this event”.

There is no charge and song sheets will be provided. Just turn up at 10.30am on June 20 outside the Old Gaol and sing along.
