Families joined Illyria Theatre on the green in front of Buckingham Parish Church last Wednesday, taking blankets, chairs and picnics to watch the shows in comfort and style.

There was something for everyone, with singing, flying and the cast of five changing costumes at record speed to play the various characters.

When Captain Hook was swallowed by a giant crocodile, the crowd erupted with cheers and laughter.

Buckingham Town Council, which organised the event, provided complimentary tickets to Buckingham and Winslow Young Carers (YC2) and Ukrainian families living locally..

Councillor Robin Stuchbury, who chairs the Town Centre and Events Committee, said: “It is always rewarding to see families coming together and enjoying themselves.

"None of this would be possible without the support of members and staff and the council agreeing our budget to facilitate these kinds of events on behalf of the community we are so fortunate to represent.”
