Letchworth Festival has something for everyone!

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

Art Children's Art Competition 2017

The Letchworth Festival Children's Art Competition is an event for children aged 4 to 11 years in Letchworth Garden City. Letchworth children's groups and schools and any children living in Letchworth are invited to take part.

This year's theme is “My favourite way of keeping fit and healthy”. Submissions were accepted up until 31 May.


The entries are on public display in Letchworth Town Centre during the Festival fortnight, as well as here on the Festival website.

A panel of judges reviewed all entries, and there was a public vote here on the Festival website.

Voting closed at midnight on Saturday 24 June, and prize winners were announced at Proms in the Park on Sunday 25 June.

A big thank you to everyone who voted. Over 1800 votes were cast through the Festival web-site, on the 363 entries.

Active Letchworth Active Letchworth Festival Challenge

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, or take it to the Tourist Information Centre thereafter.

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.
