Welcome to the home page of the Chesham Arts Festival.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are delighted to be celebrating in 2017 the 41st. annual Chesham Arts Festival of Music, Dance and Speech,
and we very much hope to see you at our events in February.
The Dance Section will take place at the Elgiva, Speech will be held at Ley Hill School,
while the Music Section will use two venues: the Elgiva and the Whitehill Centre.
The 2017 Festival will, as always, provide a wonderful showcase for local and regional talent, and we look forward to receiving your entries,
whether it will be your first time at Chesham Arts Festival or whether you have been before.
We are very grateful to Chess Valley Male Voice Choir, Amersham Rotary Club and Chesham Rotary Club for their generous support for the Festival.
As well as stewarding for the Music Section, Chess Valley Male Voice Choir will, as usual,
give bursaries to the two most promising performers in the Vocal and Piano Sections, one Junior and one Senior.
Chesham Rotary Club are also offering Bursaries to Junior and Senior performers in the Wind, Strings and Guitar Sections.
Amersham Rotary Club will sponsor entrants to the RIBI Young Musician Competition.
If you have any queries regarding the classes, please contact the Secretary for the relevant Section,
who will be very pleased to give you further information and guidance.
If you require more entry forms, these may be downloaded from our website.
