> Malarky (covers band who also opened last year’s event) - 1pm to 1.45pm

> 60s Jukebox (Sixties covers band) - 2pm to 2.45pm

Deputy mayor Geraldine Collins will be opening the event.

There will be stalls selling a range of food, including Go Greek, Mark’s Ices, J&L Snack Bar and Vegan Bliss.

New for this year is a festival hat stall The Wonders of Wool.

The festival takes place on a purpose-built stage in Buckingham town centre and is sponsored by Buckingham Town Council.

Although last year’s event was damp at the start the weather brightened up later in the day and a good crowd enjoyed the performances which were headlined by Red Bullets.

The forecast for this year’s event is much more favourable with bright sunshine and temperatures expected to get close to 30C on Sunday - so if you are coming don’t forget the sun protection!
