THE spirit of Rhythms of the World was well and truly alive, with droves of people turning out at the weekend for a series of events put on by organisers.
The Hitchin world musical festival had to be cancelled this year, but trustees and volunteers were determined to keep it in the public eye.
That’s why a series of events were put on across the town at the weekend, which had been earmarked for the festival itself.
Club 85, The Victoria and St Mary’s Church hosted music gigs and concerts, while Hitchin Market Place was the scene of a family fun day and performances on Sunday.
As well as performances from festival favourites, young local music and dance groups showed off their talent on the Icehouse Stage equivalent.

“This series of events are part of our Rhythms of the World Presents and Rhythms of the World Community Outreach programmes which aim to bring an essence of the festival to the local community.
