Families came to enjoy the free entertainment from the stage, crafts and entertainers. They could also sample street food and drinks which were on offer for the first time.

This year’s festival chair Hilary Kemp said: “We are so pleased with the large number of people here this year and the way that the new activities and attractions have gone down.

“The street food providers added character and choice, and Crafty’s bar helped to quench thirst on the baking hot day.

“We’re also immensely grateful for the Beavers and Scouts who litter-picked throughout the festival and kept the park clean and safe.”

The music line up was the main attraction with Letchworth singer-songwriter Daisy Keeble kicking off the day, followed by the likes of Letchworth City Chorus, Viana Bay, The Scallywags and finally Connor Wells, who headlined the event.
