Friars Aylesbury opened in Aylesbury on 2 June 1969 and will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019. Aylesbury is generally known for four things, its ducks, Stoke Mandeville Paraplegic Games, its music club Friars Aylesbury and Earthly Messenger, the world's first statue of David Bowie. We have been in communication with the Bucks County Museum Director for over a year, about creating an exhibition to mark this important cultural milestone in Aylesbury's history, but have finally been told 'no'. Please support this petition to persuade the Bucks County Museum Trust to help Buckinghamshire celebrate this important and historic event.

Friars Aylesbury has presented some of the biggest bands in the world including The Ramones, The Clash, David Bowie, U2, Genesis, The Jam, Madness, The Specials, Motorhead, Erasure, Ian Dury, Iggy Pop, Blondie, The Police, Marillion and Pink Floyd amongst hundreds of others. Friars will be presenting several concerts in 2019 to mark its 50th Anniversary, including The Vaccines, Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets (with Nick Mason & Gary Kemp) and Steve Hackett. More will be announced soon.

The above photograph of Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon of The Clash was taken at Friars Aylesbury on 28th June 1978 by Mark Jordan.
