Letchworth Festival has something for everyone!

The Festival is an opportunity for Letchworth's many clubs and organisations to demonstrate their talents.

Help Shape the 2017 Festival

Letchworth Festival is looking for a new Treasurer

The role of Treasurer is currently vacant within the Letchworth Festival steering committee.

Piggy Bank We're a friendly bunch of unpaid volunteers, and we find it most rewarding to be involved in organising this popular community event.

If you have the skills to be treasurer for our relatively small budget and few transactions, and you'd like to help with organising Letchworth's summer festival, then please get in touch right away.

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. You could even be this year's Festival chairman.

If you would like to help out this year then please get in touch or come along to the next meeting.
