Cat Survival Trust, Welwyn

The Welwyn Festival is pleased to announce that the Cat Survival Trust will again be joining in our festivities. Last year, we were pleased to include this charity amongst those we supported.

The trust rescues and looks after big cats but also works hard to look after the animals in their natural habitat. More information can be found on their web site:

Hertbeat / Jack FM and the Welwyn Festival

We are pleased to announce that Hertbeat Radio, now Jack FM, is supporting the Welwyn Festival.

The local radio station, based in Knebworth Park, has publicised various Festival events on air over the years; this year it is planning for the StreetBeat team to cover the carnival parade.

HertBeat FM announced a change of name to 106JackFM this week; the changeover stretching the few core members of the team to ensure that it all goes smoothly. The Welwyn Festival Group wishes "Jack" the very best of luck going forward.
