AYLESBURY ON SEA

Aylesbury doesn’t have miles of golden sand or the sound of crashing waves, but Aylesbury Town Council will be bringing you Palm Trees to climb, donkeys to ride, sand pits to play in, a performance of Wind in the Willows to watch, tea-cups to ride in, singing to enjoy, deck chairs to relax in, a gyroscope to spin you (if you are brave enough), a caricaturist to pose for and a visiting family out for a “Jolly Holiday” who will have you in stitches, when Aylesbury on Sea returns on Sunday 1 July from 11am – 4pm in Kingsbury.

On top of all this seaside entertainment there is face painting, balloon modelling, make and take crafts and a wide range of games to play, suitable for all ages and abilities.  This event is entirely free, no cost for any of the entertainment, games, crafts or activities.

If you get a little peckish whilst spending the day with us, The Works will be on site selling from their ice-cream bike and there is a wide variety of restaurants, cafés and bars around the venue for you to enjoy.
