A wide variety of local community groups and sports clubs are welcoming you to visit them during the festival period. This is a great opportunity for individuals or families of all ages and abilities to find out what activities go on around Letchworth.

By collecting stickers on your Challenge Card when visiting venues from the list provided, and returning your card to Active Letchworth, you will be in with the chance to win a £25 Amazon voucher. Everyone who takes part in the challenge and gets at least one sticker will also receive a free gift.

You can collect your card with more information about the challenge from the Active Letchworth stand in Leys Avenue on Saturday 10 June and return your card to the Active Letchworth stand in Howard Park on Sunday 25 June.

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.
