Hitchin’s month-long festival of arts, music and comunity events is heading into its final few days, but there are still events galore to savour.

Food events have been a feature of the 2015 calendar, and that theme continues right until the final day.

There’s a modern British tapas night at the Victoria pub in Ickleford Road tonight, and the pub’s barn is also the venue for a free British wine festival.

There will be plenty of food served on Saturday during Bucklersbury Day, when traders in the historic street are setting out their stall until 8pm in support of the Humanitas charity shop that sits in their midst.

And the festival finale at the Heritage Rd bar and restaurant on Sunday evening will see mouthwatering treats as well as music.

It’s £20 for a table of six, including a bottle of house wine or six bottles of beer, and an evening buffet at £10 a head can be booked with the venue on 01462 433603.

On the music front, the popular series of lunchtime concerts at St Mary’s Church continues tomorrow, Friday, with a performance by Caritas Harmony.

And there’s more music at The Angel’s Share in The Arcade tomorrow night, when Alex Bay will be performing from 8.30pm.

The whole town centre will be welcoming buskers galore on Saturday, and there’s more music planned at The Angel’s Share in the evening.
