On Saturday June 23rd the Buckingham Society will be organising Buckingham Civic Day. This is something we have done for the last five years and we have the presentation of the awards to the Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year and some sort of musical entertainment outside the Old Gaol. This year I am thinking about some sort of busking set up where we would invite local musicians to do a stint and collect money for a designated charity – probably the U3A charity for 2018 which, as you probably know, is the League of Friends of Buckingham Hospital.
Tad Newton & his Jazz Friends will be performing at a special Gin & Jazz evening at RLS on Saturday 6th October 2018, to raise funds for the Sports Campus.
