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.
