Organisers of the Rhythms Of The World music festival at Hitchin Priory are transforming the venue’s grounds into a festival-ready site, prepared to welcome tens of thousands of music-lovers to Hitchin this weekend.
Passers-by on Bridge Street may even catch a glimpse of the circus big-top being erected to house the St Mary’s Stage, one of the six stages on site this weekend.
Amy Hopkins, Rhythms chairman, said: “Art installations are being fixed in place, tents are going up, and traders are seeing their little corners of the festival take shape. It has been a hive of activity all week long, and if the buzz of excitement in the air just from the set-up crews is any indication, this is going to be a festival to remember.”
Organisers are still looking for volunteers to help during the two day festival.
“We can still use stewards to work the weekend of the festival. It’s a great deal, you work for four hours right in the centre of the action, and get to spend the rest of that day at the festival for free. We can also use help with tearing down the festival site when it’s all over. You’ll meet new people, work up a good honest sweat and really have fun,” said Ms Hopkins.
