Desborough Carnival 2023
Desborough Carnival & Whizz Fizz Fest join forces for a celebration of
Music, Culture & Art in High Wycombe
FREE Live Music, Creative Workshops, Street Performers, Food Trucks and more! Head to Desborough Road on Saturday 8th July, from 11am – 4pm for a Carnival celebration…
The FREE town centre event, a celebration of music & culture, represents the very best of local performers, artists, with a busy line-up of creative classes, live storytelling, local choirs & musicians, giant games, giveaways and more.
Located centrally to Desborough Road, and in collaboration with Wycombe Arts Centre, and King’s Church, the entertainment will take place throughout the day, from 11am – 4pm, and with Desborough Road closed to traffic, especially for the occasion, there’ll be activities to enjoy along the whole street!
The Main Stage will be located adjacent to King’s Church, featuring performances from local groups including Castle Street Dancers, The Blend Choir and Irish Dance PLUS there’ll be live Storytelling sessions on-stage. A Kid’s Disco will keep the atmosphere lively with fun games & dance parties, plus there’ll be immersive ‘story theatre’ from creative organisation Cue34 in the ‘Friendship Tent’.
For those feeling peckish, there’ll be exceptional food offerings from Desborough Road favourites, including Burger Daddy & Uncle Sami’s, plus there’ll be face painting, stilt walking and even soft play for everyone to enjoy – the fun is never-ending, and it’s all FREE…
We at Wycombe Arts Centre will also be hosting our very own Stage with live performances from local bands and DJ’s from 11am – 6pm.
