A town with a deep and remarkable history, Amersham buzzes with activity all summer long and the super heritage day is not to be missed!
This year it's Sunday September 11th 2016 - don't miss it!
This coincides with the four-day-long national Heritage Day programme, celebrating England’s local history and culture, and giving access to thousands of places usually closed to the public.
Last year, 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 Amersham hotels, and to the The Kings Chapel and The Entertainer for sponsoring the event.
Come and stay for the week! Amersham is blessed with quality accommodation like the Barn, the Kings Arms and Crown hotels as well as myriad quality restaurants and pubs and not forgetting the exquisite countryside. So come and visit and enjoy our wonderful Amersham accommodation and hospitality.
If you have any suggestion on what to include at next year’s event– planned for 11 September– then please get in touch.
