The Love Letchworth event included beer, gin and prosecco tents, as well as a wealth of cuisines and children’s entertainment.

Letchworth BID manager Patricia Saunders said: “Thousands of people visited Letchworth town centre for our third Beer and World Food Festival.

“It was a fantastic weekend with something for everyone, fine weather and a great atmosphere.

“We were really pleased to be supported by local businesses including sponsor Crafty’s, who organised the main beer tent on Leys Square, and Garden City Brewery in the Wynd, who put on a fabulous Cider Festival.”
