It’s not just terrifying warriors who will be invading Walsworth on Sunday – hundreds of funseekers looking to enjoy what’s billed as one of the largest free festivals in Hertfordshire will be heading there, too.
The Walsworth Festival is now in its 41st year and organisers say this year’s event will be the best yet.
Events are being held on Walsworth Common and the nearby St. Faiths Church in Woolgrove Road, and one of the star attractions is the appearance of the all action Gesithas Herred Viking group.
Other highlights include the ever popular Lesnick School of Ballet, Purwell School cheerleaders, Stotfold Twirlers, Hitchin School of Russian Ballet, Hitchin Youth Band and Letchworth Morris Men, to name just a few
There are stacks of stalls and games scheduled, a mini funfair, classic cars, and traditional treats like Punch & Judy and a magician – and a licensed bar, cakes, refreshments and cream teas will make sure nobody goes hungry.
Festival events run from 11am to 4pm on the common and from 1pm at the church.
