Aylesbury Thursdays set to bring summer fun to the town centre

24 Jul 2018

This summer, Aylesbury’s Market Square will host several fun activities for children to enjoy.

The fun will begin with Magical Thursday on 26 July, when Colonel Custard and his award-winning magic show will be coming to town. He will be performing four times: 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30 pm. Each show costs £2.50 per person. He’ll be creating spellbinding magic that is guaranteed to amaze the audience. There will also be a selection of stalls on hand, including: face painting by Zoomania, sweets, drinks, delicious fudge, candy floss, plus handcrafted clothes and accessories for babies and children.

On Thursday 23 August 11am-3pm, kids can test out their skills and strength on the climbing wall and the bungee trampolines. Each activity will cost £2.50. Once again, there will be a small selection of stalls on hand, including: face painting by Zoomania, sweets, drinks, delicious fudge, plus handcrafted clothes and accessories for babies and children.

Thursday 30 August 11am-3pm will see the return of the popular Quacker Duck trail, which will take place around a variety of town centre businesses. The fun trail is free to take part in, and entry forms will be available from the Hale Leys shopping centre at The Works retailer and Lil’ Riders on the High Street. There will also be a bubble wizard performing in Market Square - adding colour, magic and enchantment to the day.

Aylesbury Town Centre Manager Diana Fawcett said: “We’re delighted to launch the summer holiday events for this year in the town. While in the town centre, take the time to enjoy one of our many independent cafés and coffee shops and extend your day out with a visit to the museum, cinema, theatre, swimming pool, go karts, bowling or Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery.”

Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership has fantastic #AylesburyThursdays events planned for the school summer holidays. Details of these and other events and attractions including the Roald Dahl Gallery, Aylesbury Library, Aylesbury markets and Bucks County Museum can be found in the Aylesbury live guide: www.visitaylesbury.co.uk

Thanks to valuable contributions from Aylesbury Vale District Council, town centre organisations and businesses, this summer offers lots of opportunities for kids to try something new.
