Christmas

With Summer now a distant memory, we look towards the end of the year and Christmas. Amersham will be bustling with festive cheer so make sure you note down these Christmas events taking place.

Amersham Action Group are hosting their popular Christmas Festival on Saturday 1 December. There will be lots of wonderful attractions on offer from 12:00 noon including Children’s Funfair, Santa’s Grotto, Live Entertainment,  Christmas Market in St. Michael and All Angels Church and the fantastic Christmas Tree light switch on at 4.30pm. It promises to be a great event for all the family to enjoy.

Next up is the Old Amersham Christmas Shopping Evening in Old Amersham on Friday 7 December. The Old Amersham Business Association will be transforming the Market Square and Broadway into a wonderful Christmas wonderland with lots of exciting Christmas themed attractions including a skating rink, festive Christmas carols and Christmas Tree switch on by a very special guest. Keep your eyes peeled and ears open for more updates from the organisers of this event.

And last but certainly not least is the Amersham Community Carol Service. Town Mayor Councillor  Caroline Jones is delighted to announce that this year’s Carol   Service will be taking place in the beautiful St. Mary’s Parish Church in Old Amersham on Thursday 13 December from 6.30pm.

Local school children will take centre stage this year, with the evening open to all residents.
