Amersham unveils "entertainment overload" Jubilee party
A PATRIOTIC sing song, 1950s street parties and Coronation display are among plans to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in Amersham.
A three day party will kick off on June 2 when Mayor Mimi Harker follows a fleet of floats to open the Amersham Carnival.
Crowds can enjoy fairground rides, bouncy castles, market stalls, wine and music at the King George V playing field from midday.
The town will be dressed in vintage style bunting for the 1950s style street parties organised for across Amersham on Sunday, with the biggest on Old Town High Street.
Dress up in poodle skirts and comb back your hair to enjoy performances by the Reloaded Blues Blues Band or check out a special display of Coronation memorabilia at the Amersham Museum.
June 4 hopes to be one of the town’s biggest events yet with Cllr Harker describing it as an “entertainment overload”.
A stage at the King George V playing field will host a patriotic performance by the 400 strong Amersham Rock Choir.
There will be craft stalls, a beer tent, hog roast, inflatable assault courses and sumo wrestling.
Cllr Harker said: “There will almost certainly be something for everyone to enjoy which is great because we want the whole town to support and celebrate this occasion in the style that it deserves.
“This is a once in a lifetime celebration, we’re never going to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee again and we’re never going to have the Olympics or Para-Olympics in London, it will be a year to remember.
“Come and join us with your family, bring a picnic, spread you’re blanket out and enjoy the atmosphere.”
