GALLERY: Thousands turn out for Hitchin street party

MORE than 1,000 people packed into a sunny Hitchin Market Square on Sunday, to take advantage of a free street party.

The event, which was organised by Hitchin Christian Centre (HCC) to its 30th birthday, was held on Sunday and featured a host of entertainment.

There was live music from local artists James Christie, Don Court, Mash Market and HCC’s choir.

A free barbecue, inflatables, face painting, cake decorating, games and stalls were also on offer throughout the day.

“We were completely overwhelmed by the response to the Party in the Square and the day couldn’t have been better,” said HCC head of communications Paul Windo.

“Great weather, a great turnout and the atmosphere was really buzzing.

“It was a truly great way to celebrate Hitchin Christian Centre’s 30th anniversary and our Christian faith.
