'Amersham Museum reopened in summer 2017 after a major refurbishment and expansion. The museum’s medieval hall house is now more clearly visible for visitors to see and enjoy. The new museum displays explore life in the town in 1580, 1775, 1892, 1939 and 1964. Complete your visit with a wander through our wonderful herb garden, which is packed with plants used for medicinal purposes ... We are an independent museum and registered charity, run almost entirely by volunteers. We do not receive funding from local or central government ... The Friends of Amersham Museum  (FOAM) promote, support and assist the museum by raising money through subscriptions, donations and fund raising events. Members benefit from free entry to the museum, preferential rates to talks & lectures, early and private viewings to exhibitions and a calendar of social events.'

Category Gardens Trusts

'Buckinghamshire Gardens Trust’s mission is to record and conserve the gardens and parks of historic Buckinghamshire and to aid in the creation and restoration of gardens, parks and green spaces in the historic county ... Since our foundation in 1997 we have worked to raise awareness of the importance of parks, gardens and the designed landscape within the county of Buckinghamshire. We have done this by means of talks during the winter given by experts in their fields and, during the summer, visits to a variety of gardens and interesting sites, the majority of which are not normally open to the public.'

Category Arts Festivals

'The Wooburn Festival was originally conceived ... by one of Britain's leading orchestral conductors, the late Richard Hickox CBE. Richard's vision was to bring orchestras and musicians of international repute to the Chilterns and Thames Valley. His objective was to encourage wider public access to affordable high quality music that was within easy reach of the local community. From the Festival's humble beginnings it has become an established and well loved event in the Chilterns and Thames Valley calendar.' Normally held Early October.
