Find us at the Food & Drink Festival this weekend, Sat 26 - Sun 27 May

Letchworth Food Festival

Come along to Letchworth's fabulous Food & Drink Festival this weekend where you can not only consume a vast array of food, but you can also pick up your Letchworth Festival event programme.

You'll find us at the top end of Leys Avenue. Look for the stall with the big Festival logo banners. For more information about the Food & Drink Festival go to loveletchworth.com

This year you won't receive a Letchworth Festival programme through the post. You'll need to pick one up from Letchworth town centre.

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.
