AMERSHAM HERITAGE DAY:

A real family friendly day out – Amersham Old Town will be packed on Sunday 10th September with the return of this year’s Amersham Heritage Day.

The Memorial Gardens will feature entertainment throughout the day including Chiltern Jive Club and Soundforce Big Band. Plus there will be medieval re-enactments, Irish Dancing and the Chesham All Girls Marching Band will be pulling in the crowds! This is in addition to music featuring in several pubs along the High Street, fairground rides, classic cars and Steam Traction engines.
