The second Hats Off Chesham! festival is making a comeback this summer.

Chesham Connect and Town Council revealed the free festival on July 9 will be bigger than before as the stalls, bouncy castle and entertainment extend along the High Street from Market Square to The Broadway.

The organisers have one request – to get to the spirit of the day, everyone should wear an unusual or comical hat.

The Chair of Chesham Connect, Michael Rowan, said: "We had such amazing support from the Chesham Community last year, how could we not do it again?"

Hats Off Chesham! sprang from Chesham Connect’s High Street Strategy and aims to provide a day of entertainment whilst showing off what Chesham High Street has to offer, both to the people of Chesham and surrounding villages, and visitors from further afield.

Councillor Jane Macbean said: “This is definitely one date to put in the calendar, and we are pleased to be working in partnership once again with Chesham Connect, on what promises to be another great day packed with fun.”

The organisers revealed Lennons Solicitors and Potter and Ford as the joing headline sponsors. 

Andrew King, Managing Director at Lennons Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to be joint headline sponsors with Potter and Ford.

"Lennons Solicitors has had a presence in Chesham for almost 40 years and we saw this as an ideal opportunity to support the local community on what I am sure will be a highly successful and fun filled event.”
