On Sunday 23rd April Queens Park Arts Centre took part in Aylesbury Town Council’s Royal Historical Fayre at Discover Bucks Museum for St George’s Day. The day provided free entertainment and themed activities for local families before the start of the St George’s Day Parade through Aylesbury town centre.
The sun broke through the clouds as crowds assembled in the garden of Discover Bucks Museum to watch Unbound Theatre’s storytellers perform ‘Right Royal Aylesbury’, a hilarious collection of tales revealing Aylesbury’s surprising royal connections!
Meanwhile, in the museum’s Learning Zone, visitors were treated to an array of St George’s Day and Regal themed free craft activities with QPAC offering their expertise in all things ceramics and creating clay dragon’s eyes with crafters of all ages!
At 3pm, Unbound’s actors, along with SDSD’s dancers, marched and danced through the town centre for the St George’s Day Parade.
Unbound also unveiled a brand new symbol of storytelling – the ‘Bard of Aylesbury’, with the Bard’s first official appointment to open the event and service of thanks. The Bard of Aylesbury is a new project delivered in partnership with Aylesbury Town Council.
A huge thank you to all those who took part, and also a special thanks to Aylesbury Town Council, Unbound Theatre, SDSD dance school and Hand Talking for making it such a wonderful event to be a part of.
