WhizzFizzFest to return

La Voix from Waterside's panto makes the announcement

Aylesbury’s WhizzFizzFest returns on Saturday June 22 next year. The spectacular La Voix (pictured) from Aylesbury Waterside Theatre’s Peter Pan Christmas production was on hand to make the announcement.

Festival-goers can expect another whizzfizzingly wonderful day. With some familiar faces alongside plenty of new things to see and do, the event will be brimming with celebrity author guests, workshops and a giant puppet parade of local schoolchildren through the town centre. The day itself is intended to be a spectacular celebration of children’s art and literature, with many ticketed and free events to attend.

Festival-goers are being encouraged to take inspiration from a favourite book or author, whether this be a Dahl classic, such as Fantastic Mr Fox, a children’s favourite, Awful Auntie, or a gruesome pick from the Horrible Histories series.

Aylesbury Vale District Councillor Councillor Paul Irwin, Cabinet Member for Environment and Leisure, said: ‘Last year’s festival drew marvellous crowds into Aylesbury and really promoted and built on our fantastic community spirit. This year’s event is promising to be even bigger and better and we can’t wait to be able to announce the line-up for WhizzFizzFest 2019.

‘Our organising committee has been working hard behind the scenes to bring another year of fantastical fun to Aylesbury so be sure to look out for a special announcement coming in the New Year bearing more exciting news and revealing one of our celebrity guests.’

More details about further special guests and ticketing will be released on March 1.
