Letchworth Film Festival 2019
Letchworth Fim Festival 2019 celebrates music and musicals with a series of toe-tapping movies:
Tuesday 18 June, 8pm: West Side Story
The wine festival will be held at Letchworth Golf Club; a fabulous venue with both inside and outside space.
The £12.50 tickets gives you six generous samples from wines from different countries.
There will be some finger food and a special celebtration of the 10th Anniversary.
Singers from the Welsh National Opera company will be giving a special concert at All Saint’ Church, to raise funds for church renovation.
All Saints’ Willian is a Listed Building dating back to at least Norman times. It is one of the oldest buildings in the Letchworth Garden City Estate. Over the last twenty years major renovation has been carried out to the Tower, the Roof and the Damp Course and Drainage. We are now embarking on a major reordering of the interior of the Church to install a kitchen and toilet facility and to develop a building which can serve the local community not only as a Church but as a centre for music and the arts.
Tickets: Pay as you feel. All proceeds to go to the renovation.
Calling all Local Clubs, Groups and Organisations
There's still time to submit your event details for inclusion in Letchworth Festival 2019, taking place from Sat 15 June to Sun 30 June.
The deadline for inclusion in printed publicity was 30 April 2019, but you can still add and amend event details for the online listings right up to the Festival itself. Click here to add or amend your event details.
Letchworth Festival is organised by volunteers. We need new volunteers each year to take over from those that inevitably step down from time to time.
As well as general helpers, we're looking for a few people who could coordinate an aspect of the festival, for example the opening parade, or a fun-day, or a day of dance. No experience necessary, and do as much or as little as you want.
If you would like to help out this year then please get in touch or come along to the next meeting.
