What's on in Chesham this weekend
THERE is plenty going on to keep you and your family entertained this weekend in Chesham.
Music lovers will not want to miss an event happening tomorrow (Oct 27) at The Elgiva, in St Mary's Way.
The theatre will be transformed into the home of the fourth Buxfest, to accommodate eight bands, plus DJs and acoustic artists.
The bands will be in the main theatre, and the foyer will be home to DJs and acoustic artists. For most of the time, there will be performances on both stages, but once headliner Mask of Judas take to the stage, the spotlight will be all theirs.
