An Evening of Song with Welsh National Opera

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.
Tickets from: Tourist Information Centre, or the venue. Click here for full details.

Team Work Seeking volunteers

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.
