AMERSHAM HERITAGE DAY – SUNDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER 2018!!

A real family friendly day out – Amersham Old Town will be packed on Sunday 9th September with the return of this year’s Amersham Heritage Day. It promises to be the best yet with a jam-packed programme than ever before….with the event taking place from 11.30am until 5.30pm.

This year we have buses running from Chesham (including Chesham Bois), Little Chalfont & Amersham on the Hill to Old Amersham – the buses are running approx. every 10 minutes from Amersham Station. The Memorial Gardens will feature entertainment throughout the day including Chiltern Jive Club, the Wooburn Singers and lots more!!

Plus there will be medieval re-enactments, Irish Dancing, the Chesham All Girls Marching Band, Herga Folk Band and the Young Miscellany Morris Dancers will be pulling in the crowds! Amersham A Capella will be giving a very special performance in St. Mary’s Church with tickets available in advance. This is in addition to music featuring in several pubs along the High Street, fairground rides, classic cars and Steam Traction engines.

Heritage market stalls will line the High Street complementing the craft stalls featuring demonstrations as well as a Vintage Tea Room being held in the Market Hall run by our fantastic Amersham in Bloom volunteers. And if that isn’t enough…..the following buildings will be open to the public including….Old Amersham Methodist Church (serving cream teas from 1pm to 4.30pm), Quaker Meeting House, Amersham Museum (running children’s craft activities), St. Mary’s Church including the Drake Chapel and our fantastic Market Hall. It promises to be the best Amersham Heritage Day yet – we look forward to seeing you then!
