    About the contributors


    Dr David Noy

    He is a retired lecturer in Classics, and an Honorary Research Associate of the Open University. His great- grandfather Arthur Midgley arrived in Winslow in 1867 and his family were ironmongers in Winslow for 100 years. He is the author of How One Man Transformed a Town: Winslow 1640-1770 and William Lowndes, and of various other books and articles about Winslow. He regularly gives talks about the history of Winslow and leads walks around the town.

    Adstock Singers

    The Adstock Singers was formed as a women's choir seven years ago, singing songs in a cottage sitting room. It has since grown to include singers from as far afield as Buckingham, Tingewick, Hemel Hempstead and even Winslow and has come to include male voices too. They give two formal concerts a year in St Cecilia's church, Adstock, as well as performing in art galleries, in churches throughout Buckinghamshire, in orchards and even from the back of a tractor, raising several thousand pounds for various charities. Members of the choir include first time singers, professional musicians and experienced amateurs and, above all, they sing for the joy of singing together!

    Winslow Players

    Festival 2022 Parish Mag June 3Formed in 1967, the Town’s amateur dramatic society has performed three productions a year since then, until the outbreak of Covid-19 stopped them in their tracks. Members come from far and wide, including Aylesbury, Leighton Buzzard and Milton Keynes, and they always welcome new members. This is their first public performance since February 2020.
