‘Formed to encourage and promote the arts in Berkhamsted. It comprises over twenty Arts Organisations based in the local area which promote arts events open to members of the public ... The Arts Diary was first published in 1985 to co-ordinate a Spring Arts Festival and has expanded since into its present annual form. While most of the events take place within Berkhamsted, the Diary contains information about events outside Berkhamsted that are arranged by member organisations primarily for Berkhamsted residents. These events are usually events which cannot be held locally because suitable facilities are not available.’

‘Founded by its director Adrian Davis in 1976, and draws its singers from Berkhamsted and the surrounding towns and villages. They share a passion for singing and perform at least three main concerts each year in St Peter’s Church, mostly with orchestra or organ accompaniment. Though they have outgrown their original chamber choir size, their standard is enviably high and they enjoy a fine reputation both locally amongst their numerous supporters and in many places outside Britain as well. The Choir’s impressive repertoire ranges from music of the 12th century to contemporary works, often including works written specifically for the choir by Adrian Davis.’
