What Excitement is in store at this year's Welwyn Festival?


There's a FREE Family Barn Dance for all ages and abilities to enjoy.

There are two concerts at St Mary's Church plus the Festival concert. Band Night for teens is back, too.

There are free sports at Singlers Marsh, the bowls club in Ottway walk and other events.

There are free exhibitions of photography and art, Film shows and Talks, and more! You can even visit the Big Cats at the sanctuary this year.

Of course, we'll host the popular annual events: the Street Market, Family Fun Day and the Street Parade "Hollywood comes to Welwyn" plus Open Gardens and Cuckoo in the Nest competition for school children.

The printed programme and our brand new website should provide everything you need to know when the time comes. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates:

2015 Welwyn Festival Charities

Proceeds from the 41st Welwyn Festival Week will be divided between various good causes, locally, including: Jubilee House for physically and mentally disabled people, Isabel Hospice for the terminally ill, McMillan Nurses Cancer Centre in Lister Hospital, Herts Air Ambulance, Riding for the Disabled, Guide HQ Rebuilding Fund, Guessens Road WGC and Medical Dogs Canine Partners for stroke/disabled sufferers.

It is our expectation that we will donate £5,000 to these wonderful local and county charities that benefit the people of Welwyn, all run by devoted selfless people. Your generosity has enabled us to donate in excess of £50,000 in the past 16 years.

In addition, the 10k run profits will be donated by Garden City Runners to the 4 local primary schools: St. Mary’s, Oaklands, St. John’s Digswell and St. Michael’s Woolmer Green.
