Thousands Flock To High Wycombe’s ‘Frogfest’ on Bank Holiday Sunday. High Wycombe celebrated a bumper Bank Holiday Sunday with another rocking ‘Frogfest’ family-festival – now in its 9th successful year!
High Wycombe was alive with music this bank holiday Sunday, as the annual ‘Frogfest’ returned for its 9th year. The popular town centre event attracted 1000’s of music fans, families and festival fanatics, all of whom flocked to hear musical performances from TWENTY local bands – serenading visitors with a combo of Indie, Jazz and Pop to Bhangra, Ska and Rock – as well as enjoy FREE entertainment from street performers, circus workshops & a bubble magician.
Kicking off from 12noon, the crowds coaxed the sunshine out from behind the clouds, as NEW for 2022, the free-to-ride ‘Frogfest Land Train’ carried visitors on a leisurely trip around Frogmoor, Church St & White Hart St. Massage Company gave everyone the opportunity to relax with FREE massages, whilst face painters & glitter artists adorned everyone with colourful designs.
Food was also part of the ‘main event’ at ‘Frogfest 2022’ with 10 different cuisines on offer, from mouth-watering smoked BBQ meats & Lebanese mezze, to Jamaican jerk chicken, piping-hot Mac & Cheese Balls and not forgetting, cakes, brownies and TWO ice cream vans. The complimentary ‘Frogfest 2022’ re-useable cups became a ‘must have’ item, with the local pubs & bars doing a roaring trade, particularly the Mad Squirrel Beer Truck, located opposite the Main Stage.
Boutique craft & gifts stalls were on-hand for the bank holiday shoppers, plus Wycombe Food Hub, Wycombe MIND, Wycombe Youth Action & The Mayor’s Appeal each hosted stalls offering tombolas, games & prizes, raising £100’s of charitable funds for their organisations.
