Below is an update on this years Town Festival.

 

Princes Risborough Annual Town Festival 5th to 12th July 2014

 

It is Festival time again in Risborough and plans are well underway for another week of fun and entertainment!

This year’s theme is children’s book characters, which will be reflected across many events throughout the town

The week long activities start on Saturday 5th July with the popular Children’s Fancy Dress Parade through the High Street and Market Square to Wades Park led by The Chiltern Hills Brass Band. Following the fancy dress judging and prize giving we have an afternoon of children’s entertainment including Circus Training, Martial Arts and Cheerleader displays, the infamous Tug of War, children’s races, toddler music group and puppets, kids games and stories, plus an array of stalls, including a bar and food.

On Saturday evening the mood changes to something for the adults at the Community Centre – a James Bond themed evening “Casino Royale”. Ever fancied being James Bond at the Casino? Well now is your chance! Play for fun at Blackjack and Roulette but with a chance of winning cash prizes for the evening’s best gamblers.

To entertain you the wonderful talents of Miss Dawn Alacey will perform her unique show “A License to Thrill” showcasing classic songs such as ‘Goldfinger’, ‘A View to a Kill’, ‘Live and Let Die’ and ‘ Diamonds are Forever’. These songs were written for the sensational Ian Flemming Movies and will really add to the evening’s fun. Throughout the performance Dawn will amaze you with her remarkable three octave vocal range to fully capture the original mood of each song, while adding her own personal warmth, fun and endless energy.

Artists such as Shirley Bassey, Matt Monro, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra and Tina Turner originally recorded the songs and Dawn pays a special tribute to each of these legends during a breath-taking night with the great British Spy.

If that was not enough hot food and a bar will be available – How do you like your Martini?

Tickets only £10 each which includes entrance and free casino money.

Sunday 6th A Children’s Chocolate Hunt will be held later for all children accompanied by an adult. This will start at 1pm at Whiteleaf Cross.

Throughout the Festival Week many clubs, societies and local businesses host will an array of open evenings, exhibitions, walks, concerts, factory tours, and a barn dance.

Saturday 12th July sees the culmination of the Festival with an Annual Street Fair from 1pm. An array of stalls, food, and a bar will line the High Street supported by live music from the Market Square. Stage Acts include Rattlesnake and the Tiny Tina Turner Rock and Blues Band – a high energy 5 piece band playing all the popular Tina Turner songs as well as a few favourites along the way
