Buskers of all varieties are needed to help make Aylesbury a fun day out according to council chiefs.

Town centre manager Diane Fawcett, hopes encourage more local groups to showcase themselves in the town centre with new activities on offer including donkey rides.

She said: “The aim of the street life programme is that you come to Aylesbury and there’s a bit of a buzz and variety when you come to town.

“We want to see lots of different sorts of street entertainment and buskers, we want to facilitate a range of buskers to enhance the town centre.”

Existing performers, such as guitarists, ukelele players, drummers and pan pipe players will remain, but Mrs Fawcett wants other entertainers to come forward to improve the range of sights and sounds on offer.

She said: “In terms of other street entertainment there’s going to be a variety of things, which even include donkey rides.

“We will also have street musicians performing at tables in the Kingsbury area.”

“If there are any local groups that want to do a performance and showcase themselves please get in touch.

“We would love to hear from anyone from karate groups to local choirs.

“They might not even have thought about it yet, but it’s a great way to show all the things that people can do.”

If you would like to show what you can do on the street of Aylesbury this summer email Diane Fawcett at dfawcett@aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk
