The Amersham Martyrs Community Play was first presented in 2001 and repeated in 2004, 2011 and 2016. Up to now it has been a promenade performance but, as a response to continuing Covid anxieties the 2022 play has been remodelled as a New Production! Audiences on each evening will be restricted to 100 and all will be seated around a single stage. The townspeople interactions before and between scenes which have been such an important element of previous productions will be retained; cast members have been researching and developing their unscripted parts since September 2021 and their stories which convey so much about life in early Tudor Amersham will continue to be performed.

St Mary’s Church has a high roof and ventilation will be maintained with external doors kept open.

We want to make this production as inclusive as possible. There are no steps into the church allowing wheelchair access. Please indicate when you buy your ticket if you need a wheelchair space reserved.

Seated audience only 100 tickets each night, Tickets £13

“Enjoyed our visit to this wonderful interactive museum where you are positively encouraged to touch things!”

“Visited Amersham museum yesterday – lovely place, provides many details on the history of the place. Plenty of cute cafes, pubs and shops around also… not difficult to find free parking nearby. ”

“A well-run, informative and interesting small museum on the main street. It’s mostly volunteer-run and they do a great job in keeping it and making you feel welcome…Check out the herb garden too.”

“Enjoyable film and television location guided walk around Amersham hosted by Amersham Museum – here are the Sun Houses on Highover Park and further up the hill is High & Over.”
