Preparations are underway for Chesham Fringe Festival which is set to return next weekend.

Running across the final bank holiday weekend, the festival takes place at venues across the town over Saturday, May 25, to Monday, May 27.

This year's line-up includes everything from comedy to plays to music as well as plenty of family-friendly events and classes and workshops for kids.

Comedian Adam Bloom will be taking to the stage at Chesham Cricket Club on Saturday, May 25, at 7.30pm, before funnyman Larry Dean takes over at 9pm at the same venue. 

While lively singer Kirsty hopes to get the crowds going at the George and Dragon pub on the same night with a live sing-a-long show kicking off at 8pm.

Meanwhile artist Sarah Gillespie will be performing at the Drawing Room at 9.30pm.

Most events are ticketed individually but there are some free shows listed.
