About the Festival

The Walsworth Festival was first conceived in the 1950s and organised by the Walsworth Residents’ Community Association at St Faith’s Church. Having gone through a number of different incarnations over the years, the festival is now run by a small band of local volunteers, and is host to various stalls, events, music, food, and even a car show! So mark our event in your calendar and join the thousands of other visitors who come from far and wide to celebrate over 50 years of Walsworth Festivals!

Getting there


There will be parking on the day for £3 and will be manned by volunteer marshals. Please use this car park or walk to the event so we can avoid congestion through cars parking on the road.


There is a circular bus, number 81 run by Centrebus which has a stop on Woolgrove road.


From Hitchin Station, follow Cambridge road towards Letchworth going under the railway and following the road round past the Millstream pub, turning left at the traffic lights. (there are several cut throughs to the park via Meadowbank, Millstream pub but we advise following the road round to avoid the archery area).


The Walsworth Festival is a not for profit event organised by local residents and supported by North Herts District Council funding and revenue made on the festival day. Without people like you helping us, this event just couldn't happen - we are always looking for volunteers!
