Buckinghamshire’s ‘Summer of Stories’ is well and truly underway – but there’s still time for you to get involved.
This summer, Buckinghamshire Culture and Buckinghamshire Council have been working together to create a Summer of Stories, focusing on a theme of ‘stories of happiness’. The ‘Story Stall’ is part of this multi-stranded project aiming to engage people across Buckinghamshire with stories and creativity. Inspired by our strong literary heritage this project will result in animation of town centres, activity supporting wellbeing, enhancing quality of life and maintaining connection as part of wider Covid recovery. Residents of Buckinghamshire have been invited to share and celebrate their personal stories, and those of the county itself, through conversations with artists, or via ‘Story Postcards’ at artist-led pop-up stalls across the county in markets and local high streets and at various cultural and library locations.
It’s not too late to get involved with the Summer of Stories. If you would like to get involved and share a story of happiness, or a story of Buckinghamshire, you can find the final few pop-up stalls in the following locations:
- Winslow Market on 25 August, 8:30am-2pm
- Live in the Park, Aqua Vale Park, Aylesbury on 28 August, 9am-5:30pm
- Black Park, Wexham on 29 August, 10am-4pm
- Beaconsfield Country Fair, Beaconsfield on 30 August, 9:30am-5pm
This programme is supported using public funding by Arts Council England, and funding from Buckinghamshire Council, Heart of Bucks and Rothschild Foundation.
