Free Half a Pint at the White Horse

See this week's edition of the Welwyn Hatfield Times for a "free half a pint" offer at the White Horse, Welwyn...

What's happened to the Welwyn Festival website?

We're not sure why www.welwynfestival.org.uk isn't working at the moment; we've put in a support call and hope to bring it back up within 24 hours.

The weather was good - so was The Street Market


Thank you to everyone who turned out on Saturday morning for contributing to another successful event.
There are some more Welwyn Street Market photographs on Facebook, taken very early in the day - are you there?

If anyone else wants to send in photos, please do.

Enjoy the rest of the Festival!

"The Day They Launched A Woodpecker!"
An alternative history of space exploration.

Come and hear some amazing stories about space exploration, collected by local space presenter and author, Jerry Stone.

No matter how weird these stories are, they are all absolutely true, which means that ...
