MIP Comp Web Image

Sunday 5th May | Elms Park, Thame

Music in the Park, started in 2011 with the aim of creating an annual community performing arts festival. A key objective was to provide a platform for local artistes, especially young performers. This has proven a great success; the vast majority of performers are local, many of them young. The event is run by a small band of enthusiastic volunteers and has grown to become a fantastic and much-anticipated event for the people of Thame and surrounding area. 

Headlining the music programme this year will be Special Kinda Madness ( They will be performing a truly authentic set from archetypal British favourites, Madness, featuring all the wonderful iconic tunes made famous by the ‘Nutty Boys’. Other acts include popular local favourites Dragonfly and Laura Williams.

Featuring entertainment across three main stages from midday through to 9pm, there’s something for everyone. Showcasing many local acts, you will be treated to music of all genres: rock, pop, blues, acoustic, jazz and choir. There will also be something for dance fans as well with show favourites Urban Strides and Thame Stagecoach.

In addition, you’ll find all the usual attractions you’d expect at a festival, including a wide range of food, drink and craft stalls, a children’s area with fun activities, as well as Zorbing, a bouncy castle and a creche.

Hello @followers Welcome to the July 2024 Issue of Look Local Magazine. I want to dedicate this months letter to three NEW local businesses that I have been made aware of. First up we have Beauty at No.11 which is a sustainable beauty studio that has opened in Watlington. Owned by Watlington resident, 23-year-old Georgina Eales, the salon offers the full range of treatments that customers would expect to find in larger salons, but with the emphasis very much on sustainable, hypo-allergenic products. Georgina, who learned her craft with respected beauty industry leaders Clinique and Charlotte Tilbury, has clear ideas about how to set her business apart from others. She is the only beauty studio within a 25-mile radius to offer Hona, a pioneer of hypo-allergenic nail products. Other innovative services include Elim, a medical grade pedicure treatment, which uses state of the art ingredients to remove hard skin from the feet. You can find our more about Beauty at No.11 on their website The next business I want to give a shout out to is a small, sustainability-led retail business called Comhla (pronounced - coh-la), which means ‘together’. Founded by Lucie Harrild, the brand aims to help customers step away from fast fashion by enjoying a variety of brands and services using their mantra: Buy Well. Mend. Extend. Lucie was a sustainability professional for the last 20 years and then in 2022 ventured into the world of Comhla, in 2023 she opened a small boutique in Long Crendon to showcase the concept she is building online into a reality for customers. For more information about the business or to shop, visit them in person at Manor Stables, Long Crendon, HP18 9FF or head to their online shop With the online world in mind, and with summer well and truly upon us now, this leads nicely onto the third new business I wanted to bring to your attention to.

Turn to page 12-13 for their Top Picks of the perfect products to transform your outdoor space and embrace alfresco living!
