The Walsworth festival organised by volunteers and assisted by local groups, has over the years provided a healthy mix of old-fashioned family fun and modern attractions.

This year's festival will take place in Walsworth Common, on Sunday, May 17 between 11am and 4pm and is due to be opened by the chair of NHDC.

The arena events this year include the Wryngwyrn, a Viking re-enactment group who will perform and set-up a live history encampment and the popular Lesnick's School of Ballet.

Hermitage Hall Bar and Restaurant will provide the bar and also host a musical stage.

There will be a variety of food on offer, including vegan options for the first time which will be offered by Hitchin Street Food.

Other highlights on the day will include Punch and Judy, Hitchin youth brass band, fairground rides and charity stalls which will offer books, cakes, raffles and more.
