Mayor Making

From 10.30 until 11.30

At Frogmoor

High Wycombe HP13 5DQ

Come and experience an ancient tradition unique to High Wycombe! The annual weighing-in ceremony is well known in Wycombe as residents see if councillors and dignitaries have been “overindulging” during their time in office. The Mayor and Charter Trustees together with Honorary Burgesses and Officers are weighed in and out of office! Join them on Frogmoor and boo or cheer as their increase or reduction in weight is called out by the Town Crier. The audience are encouraged to “boo” for dignitaries who have gained weight over the past year and cheer for those who have managed keep it off.
