Call for Letchworth festival ideas

IDEAS are wanted for a major event in Comet country next summer.

Following the success of the 2010 Letchworth Festival, planning for the 2011 event is now under way.

And the organisers would like people with ideas to come along to an informal drop-in meeting next Tuesday, September 28, starting at 7pm in Mrs Howard Hall, Norton Way South. It will be on until 10pm.

Roger Harrison, spokesman for the festival steering committee, said: “We would like to hear from organisations and individuals who can put on an event: for any or all age groups and on any theme, for example music, walks, sport, lifestyle or drama. We will provide help with things like advertising, tickets or arranging insurance.

“Or come along and help the steering committee – everyone has a talent we can use, from assisting with the website to a winning way when handing out publicity leaflets, and everything in between!”
