Aylesbury Town Centre
WhizzFizzFest is back and bigger than ever!
Now in it’s 17th year, the family-friendly literary and arts festival has become an eagerly anticipated annual event for Aylesbury town centre, attracting visitors with interests in all areas of the arts. Originally inspired by Roald Dahl, WhizzFizzFest has evolved into a celebration of all creative arts with children’s literature and their amazing imaginations being at the heart of it all.
Headlining this year’s festival, WhizzFizzFest’s exciting literary line up includes Cressida Cowell, author of the incredible How to Train Your Dragon series, national treasure Judith Kerr, whose The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog series are amongst the country’s best loved children’s titles, and Nick Butterworth, the award-winning author and illustrator of the adored Percy the Park Keeper series.
We’re also delighted to welcome back a familiar face to WhizzFizzFest, Dame Darcey Bussell, who will be returning with her DDMix Dance Fitness schools’ dance competition, supported by BGT semi-finalist, Maddox and Aylesbury Rock Choir.
