Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) is delighted to be welcoming three incredible family-favourite authors to join them at WhizzFizzFest 2019, Aylesbury’s annual family-friendly literary and arts festival. Tickets are on sale from today!
The eagerly anticipated festival will be returning to Aylesbury town centre on Saturday 22 June where there will be even more whizzfizzing fun in store. Alongside a whole host of free activities, this year will also see the debut of The Wonder of WhizzFizz show, taking place at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.
WhizzFizzFest’s exciting literary line up will include Cressida Cowell, author of the incredible How to Train Your Dragon series, national treasure Judith Kerr, whose The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog series are amongst the country’s best loved children’s titles, and Nick Butterworth, the award-winning author and illustrator of the adored Percy the Park Keeper series.
This year, WhizzFizzFest is also proud to present ‘The Wonder of WhizzFizz’, featuring the return of the much-loved Dame Darcey Bussell DBE at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre. The fantastic family-friendly show will offer the perfect opportunity for festival goers to round off the big day. Find out who will triumph in Aylesbury’s final within the exciting national schools’ dance competition, DDMix Dance Fitness, choreographed and judged by Dame Darcey, be left spellbound by Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist, Maddox, and enjoy some fantastic live music by the Aylesbury Rock Choir.
Will Rysdale, Assistant Director – Community Fulfilment, AVDC, commented: “WhizzFizzFest is always an exciting day for Aylesbury town centre, and with this year’s line up it looks like it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! It’s great that we’re able to welcome such wonderful names to the festival and we can’t wait to reveal what other exciting, accessible and whizzfizzing fun there is in store for the day!”
