Civic Day - Saturday 22nd June

This is an opportunity to celebrate what is best about Buckingham. In 2019, Buckingham Rotary will once again present their annual Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year Awards. The Buckingham Society will, for the first time, award certificates to those people who are thought to have contributed positively during the preceding year to improving the look of our town. Possible recipients could range from individual householders who improve their properties to large businesses or organisations in the town.

Annual Garden Party and Lecture -Thursday 25th July

  Members of the Society and their friends gather to listen to a garden inspired lecture followed by an evening garden party in the grounds of the University of Buckingham. Always a very pleasant and friendly occasion and one on which the sun always shines (well almost always).

  Annual General    Meeting - Thursday     21st November

     In addition to the normal business of an AGM there is always an outside speaker. Non-members are very welcome to attend the latter talk.

Buckingham Trader of the Year 2019 - November and December

The Buckingham Society created this award in 2016 and now, every year, for three weeks in November, shoppers in Buckingham are able to pick up a form from local shops or from members of the Buckingham Society and nominate their favourite local town trader.


The award goes to the local trader who the people of Buckingham think represents all that is good about the town and its shops based on criteria such as friendliness, quality of service, excellence of window display and the variety and quality of goods sold.


Unlike with many such competitions, the Buckingham Society does not ask people to vote on line. We believe that the best trader in Buckingham should be chosen by people who actually come into the town to use the shops and other services available here.


In addition to seeking the towns favourite trader, Buckingham people also choose their favourite cafe or restaurant.


The awards are presented at the annual switch-on of the towns Christmas lights.
