Letchworth Town Trail with LGC Rocks

LGC Rocks The Festival has teamed up with LGC Rocks, a group of local people who run the Letchworth 'painted stones' treasure hunt group.

Visit the Tourist Information Centre to pick up a Town Trail leaflet to start your treasure hunt.

The Trail will last for the 2 weeks of the Festival. The aim is to find and record as many of the stones as possible by the end of the Festival (July 1st). Then hand your Trail leaflet in once you've finished - and you could win a prize in the draw.

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.
