Celebrate Buckingham is being organised by Buckingham Town Council and the Buckingham Society to celebrate the range of voluntary organisations who are serving the town, enable local groups to raise funds and recruit volunteers, and to bring residents together. It is being held in Bourton Park on 4th September 2021 from 11:00am to -3:00pm
You will be able to see the Buckingham’s Mayor Cllr Margaret Gateley being officially robed as well as the presentation of civic awards and the Town Council awards being presented by The Buckingham Civic Society and the Town Mayor. Two long serving councillors who retired in May will be made Honorary Freewomen of the town.
There will be fun activities including bouncy castle, bungee runs, tennis, bowls and cadet games. You can even test just how squeamish you are and have a try at maggot racing!

November / December Buckingham Trader of the Year 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 café or restaurant.
 The awards are presented at the annual switch-on of the towns Christmas lights.
