WhizzFizzFest, Buckinghamshire’s annual family-friendly literary and arts festival, is returning online and in Aylesbury’s town centre on Saturday 26 June!

There’s something for everyone at this year’s WhizzFizzFest with a fantastic selection of events and activities both online and spread around Aylesbury’s town centre. Following the latest UK government announcement about further easing of lockdown restrictions being delayed until 19 July, be assured that all events adhere to Step 3 Covid-19 guidelines.

The festival will be welcoming some of Britain’s best-loved story makers to shape the celebrity author line-up. Join Michael Morpurgo, Emily Gravett, Eoin Colfer and Dan Freedman to explore the magic behind reading and writing, share creative inspiration and to hear about their latest books in WhizzFizzFest’s online family-friendly author events. Or take part in free, online, interactive storytelling with The Story Chef for your chance to cook up a brand-new story, a performance created exclusively for WhizzFizzFest!

You can choose to buy a signed copy of the author’s latest book with tickets for the online author events. Plus, access to the online event is granted between Saturday 26 June and Sunday 4 July, 8pm so the event can be viewed at a time which best suits each festival goer.
