The areas' biggest music festival has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Hitchin's Rhythms of the World, which has been run entirely by volunteers since its inception in 1992, has been nominated in the arts, culture and heritage category of the annual Charity Awards.

A spokesman for the awards said the judges shortlisted the festival for the invaluable work it does in promoting music, art, dance and cuisine to people of all ages, races and abilities across the region.

The awards, which recognise the work of the voluntary sector in the UK, will be given out on June 10 at a glitzy ceremony at London's Grosvenor Hotel.
