Sitting north of London in Buckinghamshire, Aylesbury enjoys a small but thriving cultural scene. It is home to the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery, and visitors can also spot two important statues which celebrate the town’s creative legacy. Comedy fans should stop off at Exchange Street, where a bronze statue of comedian Ronnie Barker is located, whilst fans of David Bowie can enjoy a tribute to his Ziggy Stardust persona - debuted here in 1971 - in Market Square. Major entertainment hubs include the Queens Park Centre and the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, which since opening in 2010 has hosted a varied programme of touring West End musicals, plays, dance and entertainment shows as well as an annual pantomime. Upcoming West End shows to visit Aylesbury in 2023 include Heathers and Strictly Ballroom.
