Organised by volunteers and assisted by local groups, the Walsworth Festival provides a healthy mix of old-fashioned family fun and modern attractions every year.
This year's festival will take place in Walsworth Common, on Sunday, May 17 between 11am and 4pm and is due to be opened by NHDC's chair.
The arena events this year include the Wryngwyrn, a Viking re-enactment group who will perform and set-up a live history encampment, and the popular Lesnick's School of Ballet.
Hermitage Hall Bar and Restaurant will provide the bar and also host a musical stage, and a variety of food - including vegan options for the first time - will be offered by Hitchin Street Food.
Other highlights on the day will include Punch and Judy, Hitchin youth brass band, fairground rides and charity stalls which will offer books, cakes, raffles and more.
