Buckley is the second largest town in the county of Flintshire, North Wales. It is bordered by Ewloe Green to the north, Leeswood to the south, Mold to the west and Broughton the south east. Nearby towns and villages include Flint, Chester, Connah's Quay, Hawarden, Queensferry, Holywell, Northop, Pontybodkin, Shotton and Soughton. The A55 passes to the north of Buckley, giving the town easy access to Holyhead and Chester.
Buckley observes a regional celebration and march over 200 years old called the Buckley Jubilee, which is celebrated on the second Tuesday of July. The Jubilee is a ceremonial march that begins on "The Common", a large area of common ground owned by the people of the town used for leisure and recreational purposes. The march then leaves the common, and marches through the town, with representatives from the local Sunday Schools, Scout and Guide troops, and many of the local schools. Banners from each of the local faiths are carried.
St Matthew's church is the oldest in Buckley and dates back to 1821. It underwent restorations during 1897 and 1905, including a remodelling of the tower in 1902 to reduce its height. The church building consists of vestries, a west tower, a nave and clerestory.
Buckley has one nightclub, the Tivoli Nightclub (known locally as "The Tiv"), on Brunswick Road. Formerly both a cinema and a music hall, the Tivoli has seen many bands play there over the years, including Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin in the early 1970s, and many Britpop bands including Oasis (in August 1994), Ocean Colour Scene and the Super Furry Animals in the 1990s. It has been described as 'one of the finest quirky little venues of our time' and is featured in the DVD re-issue of Oasis' album, Definitely Maybe. Between summer 1992 and spring 1993, Radiohead played there twice. Today, it is centred upon more commercial dance and pop music, with few bands playing here. Despite this, the Tivoli is still a popular venue for young people.
