High Wycombe

Come and experience an ancient tradition unique to High Wycombe! The annual weighing-in ceremony is well-known in Wycombe as residents discover 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 the dignitaries who have gained weight and cheer for those who have managed to keep it off.

From 11:30 until 12:30

At Frogmoor
