Grand Opening Day - Saturday 13 June 2015

Grand Opening music

This year's Festival is lining up to be bigger and better than ever. The opening day will be packed to the rafters with music, entertainment, stalls, food, art, craft, dancing, classic cars and fairground rides. There's so much going on, we've taken over the entire Broadway Gardens and Broadway Walk.

Grand Festival Parade

We're even going to close some roads in the morning for the Grand Festival Parade, involving marching bands, performers, many vehicles, and hundreds of participants.

Do you want to be part of the Grand Festival Parade? Perhaps you're a marching band, or baton-twirling majorettes, or performers, or singers. Whatever you do, if you're local and you can do it whilst walking in the parade then get in touch with us now.

Please take notice: There will be a brief road closure in place between the hours of 9.30am until 11.30am, Saturday 13 June 2015, for all roads and vehicle access points leading onto Broadway Gardens, Eastcheap, Station Place and lower end of Broadway (also known as Broadway Walk) to allow the Festival Parade to gather and pass safely. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


Open Art Competition 2015

Letchworth Festival Art 2015

As part of the Letchworth Festival, we are organising an Art Competition, open to everyone (from amateurs to experienced artists) to show off their work, with the opportunity to meet other artists.

The winning artwork/s will feature on souvenir items in the Letchworth Garden City range, on sale at the Letchworth Garden City Tourist Information Centre and Standalone Farm.

All submitted artwork must be produced on the day, so festival goers can see art in progress and to celebrate our talented local artists.

Please contact priscilla.huby@letchworthfestival.org if you wish to enter the art competition.

Team Work Seeking volunteers

Letchworth Festival is organised entirely by volunteers. Each year, naturally, some of our volunteers are unable to continue, and so we rely on new volunteers coming along.

Would you like to get involved in something that benefits your local community? Could you devote a little spare time to come to the odd steering group meeting, and help the team organise Letchworth Festival 2015?

No experience necessary. Contact us now.
