Risborough Festival Week

Published: 31 May 2023

Princes Risborough Festival Week will take place between Saturday 24th June – Saturday 1st July and includes over 75 events throughout the week for the community to enjoy.

Organised & predominantly funded by the Town Council, the annual festival relies on the support of local businesses and sponsors for the week-long programme of events in which local businesses, clubs, and organisations open their doors to offer free taster sessions and activities.

The 2023 programme of events sees the return of some regular favourites which share the heritage of Princes Risborough town, along with new events which showcase all of the vibrant activities that are readily available to residents and neighbouring villages. With so much on offer, there is bound to be something for everyone in this year’s programme of community led events.

The week culminates in Festival Saturday on 1st July with the High Street playing host to live music and performances on the Main Stage. This is a free event that is aimed at bringing the wonderful community of Princes Risborough together. Other festival day attractions include, a man-made beach sponsored by Blanchford’s Building Supplies and C. Putnams and Sons Ltd which will be completed with deckchairs and an ice cream van, face painting sponsored by Caloo Ltd, and stilt walkers sponsored by Dukes Wine Bar and Lightfoots Solicitors. There will also be a craft workshop tent and surfer simulator both of which are sponsored by Greenmotion Local Car and Van Rental,  plus over 35 stalls that line the high street inclusive of food and drink vendors serving up delicious goodies that’ll get your taste buds singing.  Don’t forget to support our wonderful High Street retailers and hospitality venues that will also be part of this exciting day.

The main sponsor is Michael Graham Estate Agents. Carly Freestone, Marketing & Operations Director for Michael Graham said “It’s a real pleasure to be part of this prestigious annual event once again. At Michael Graham, we are big advocates for supporting communities and celebrating all things local. We hope the people of Princes Risborough and beyond enjoy this special occasion and the sun is shining!”.
