GALLERY: Walsworth Festival a big hit
THOUSANDS of people turned out for a day bursting with performances and entertainment at Hitchin’s Walsworth Festival yesterday (Sunday).
The blustery conditions did not put people off, with Walsworth Common welcoming the young and old to its event.
Morris dancers, baton twirlers, live music, ferret racing, a Punch and Judy show and a magician were just some of the entertainment on offer at the largest free festival in North Herts.
There was also a 19th century steam engine, a dog agility display and mini funfair.
St Faith’s Church joined in the fun, and opened its doors for performances from Herts Community Youth Choir, folk musicians and dance groups alongside an art exhibition and music performance from local children. There were also cream teas, flowers and cakes for sale.
