There will also be an Indoor Market at Broadway Baptist Church. The Edwardian Gallopers and other Fairground rides will be present in The Broadway and many of the High Street shops will be open late. 

Should you need help on the night, there will be stewards in hi-vis along the length of the High Street and St John's Ambulance will be providing First Aid cover at the Town Hall.

The Town Council puts on a festive display of Christmas lights in the town centre every year, including a Christmas Tree in The Broadway. The lights are officially switched on by the Town Mayor at the Christmas in Chesham event on the last Friday in November, organised by Chesham Connect. In 2014, the Council made the switch to LED lights, reducing the carbon footprint of the celebratory lighting.
