A decision is yet to be made on Parklife festival.

And unfortunately, it's bad news.

Due to the timing in which the next stage of the government’s roadmap commences, Aylesbury Town Council has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Aylesbury on Sea which was due to take place in Vale Park on Sunday 4 July.

They said: 'The decision to cancel events or give them the green light at the moment is an extremely difficult decision to make as the Town Council’s priority is the safety of its residents.'

The event will be back in 2022 where residents can enjoy the open stretch of sand and a whole host of fun, games and beachside entertainment.

A decision is yet to be made in regard to the Town Council’s August bank holiday event, Parklife Weekend.

The weekend which sees the ever-popular Live in the Park and Proms in the Park events.

Provisional plans are taking place behind the scenes and a final decision about the viability of Parklife Weekend will be made at the end of May after more information will be released

from government.

This decision will be announced by the Town Council in early June.

This delay will ensure Aylesbury Town Council can make the right decision for all involved, including performers, suppliers, the hospitality team, volunteers, staff and local residents as everyone’s safety is the Town Council’s primary focus.
