The fourth annual Buckingham Civic Day will take place on Saturday, June 20 when townsfolk are invited to celebrate their town.

The Buckingham Society is asking residents to join them outside the Old Gaol at 10.30am to celebrate in a mass singalong.

A society spokesman said: “Anyone can be involved - young, old and in between, and it will be great fun. So the Buckingham Society is hoping that loads of people will come 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 and lead the audience in singing the song Proud. Everybody present will be taught the song and will be able to join in to show their pride in Buckingham.

Buckingham MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, will be attending and will also 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 Destination 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.
