A popular pub in Marlow will invite the town’s mayor and visiting swan uppers during the annual event.

The Two Brewers, which is situated right next to the town’s stretch of the River Thames, will also see members of the town council get invited, as the popular occasion is back for a second consecutive year following the coronavirus pandemic.

The 2020 event was cancelled due to Covid-19, making it the first year since its inception in the 12th century that swans were not marked along the famous river.

Bogdan Diaconu, general manager at Two Brewers Marlow said: “It’s a pleasure to once again host the Mayor, Town Councillors and the Swan Uppers for this historic event.

“Steeped in tradition, we love how this ceremony brings the local people of Marlow together to celebrate the beautiful wildlife that we have in the area, as we continue to protect this beautiful species of bird.

The annual event sees the Queen’s swan uppers travel along the Thames over the course of five days to round up, catch and ring the birds before releasing them back into the wild.

The reason for this is that the Crown currently own all the swans within the country and that once they are marked, they will be marked in a census where they can have their health checked.

This year’s Swan Upping will take place from Monday, July 17 to Friday, July 22 with the event taking place in Marlow on Tuesday, July 18.
