HERITAGE DAY 2016

To coincide with the four-day long national Heritage Day programme, Amersham’s annual Heritage Day will take place on Sunday 11th September. With stallholders displaying products ranging from Cider and Honey to jewellery and weaving, there will be a huge variety of locally-sourced creations to enjoy on the day. If you’re on a budget, you can still come and enjoy the music in the Memorial Gardens, the numerous dance performances and gaze at the rows of beautiful classic cars that line the High Street each year. There’s always plenty to keep children entertained, such as the mini steam engine rides at the end of the street, and the opportunity to pet the animals that make an appearance especially for the event. Always a great, free family outing, organiser Steve Catanach said following the success of last year’s Heritage Day: “Each year it is growing. We hope that people will come out and enjoy the day.”  This year’s Heritage Day is set to be busier and better than ever – save the date!

 

HERITAGE DAY 2015 – The most successful yet?

Once again Old Amersham came to a standstill when residents and visitors turned out in their thousands to celebrate our annual Heritage Day in September.

With so much to see and do, we hope that everyone went home happy. Performances included those from the Chesham All Girls Marching Band, Scoil Rince Ceim Oir Irish Dancing Group, The Merrydowners Morris, The Paladins of Chivalry, Soundforce Big Band and the Amersham Band. There was a huge collection of classic cars, traction steam engines and over 50 stalls while the children petted farm animals, watched Punch and Judy, enjoyed pony rides, mini steam engine rides and took part in a medieval battle.

A huge thanks to all the residents who came along and to The Kings Chapel and The Entertainer for sponsoring the event.

If you have any suggestion on what to include at next year’s event– planned for 11 September– then please get in touch.
