There’s plenty of theatricality in store for this year’s Waterside Festival.
Last year the amazing vocals and performances from the diverse acts brought the canal side to a standstill and this year is set to be even bigger and better!
Launching the day’s events will be Paralympian Derek Derenalagi, who was injured by a roadside bomb in Helmand Province in July 2007 while serving with the Worcestershire Sherwood Foresters Regiment. One of the first soldiers to get support from the Help for Heroes charity, Derek tried his hand at track and field sports and went on to set two British records in the shot put and win gold in the F57/58 discus at the IPC Athletics European Championships. He also competed at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London in discus, an amazing turnaround in the five years since his injury.
Back by popular demand will be the mesmerising vocals and performances from local acts, Queens Park Jazz and 100-strong choir, Next Stage Choir. There’s something for everyone at Waterside Festival, from Bhangra and Indian dance and African drumming to Morris Dancing and everything in between! Vivo D’Arte Theatre School, Aylesbury Opera Company, Potted Panto, and Aylesbury Rocks will also be taking to the stage to provide even more entertainment to what promises to be a wonderful day.
