Abingdon on Thames Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce's aim is to be the voice of the local business community in the promotion of the businesses, the town and economy of Abingdon-on-Thames and to act as a representative of businesses within Abingdon and surrounding area.

On Christmas Extravaganza Day 1st December 2018 the Community FreeSpace in Bury Street will have the programme on display. Market in Bath Street for gifts and carbon cutting ideas. Events in Market Place, St Nicolas and St Helen's Church, 30 East St Helen Street. The Christmas Parade is at 12.00 and the lights switch on and fireworks are as the shops close so be in the Market Place area for viewing at around 5.45 pm.

The Chamber of Commerce holds regular social and networking meetings on the first Tuesday of every month to enable members and their guests to liaise with other chamber members in the convivial atmosphere of a local public house, hotel or a restaurant. The Chamber also hold monthly business meetings on the third Tuesday of each month to discuss any relative matters that arise. These commence at 6:30pm and usually finish no later than 8:00pm. All of our members are welcome to attend.

We also host events within the town, these include, B2B networking, promotional events, hustings and training sessions to use social media. Chamber members co-ordinate and run the Local Excellence Markets and Craft Fairs in the Market Place which attract hundreds of people to our town centre.

The Chamber of Commerce is now fully responsible for organising the annual Christmas Extravaganza. This is an all day festival which kicks off Christmas shopping in Abingdon. It has the support of Town Council in providing some beautiful light displays to make the atmosphere special.

The Chamber of Commerce promotes activity in the town centre by hiring out gazebos at reasonable rates to community groups and local businesses - for more information please contact events@abingdonchamber.co.uk

As well as events, we have representatives on a number of committees. These currently include the Vale moorings action group, the community forum, neighbourhood action group.

Membership is open to any business within Abingdon or surrounding area. We are run by a committee of members, which is elected by our members at our AGM each February.
