Festival Plans for 2015
Were you in the Millenium photograph? This year, we’re planning to take a new village photo and we hope you’ll come along to swell the ranks! This time we intend to make it more spectacular, gathering in St Mary’s church yard and the photographer will take pictures from the top of the tower, with everyone looking up at him! We hope to get all 10,000 residents on the shot, which we will probably take during Street Market, so we can overflow into Codicote Road, if necessary.
The Millenium photo and the 2015 one will both be on sale to raise funds for local charities. Our target is to donate £5,000 this year, taking us to over £50,000 given out over the last 16 years, thanks to your generosity.
There will be a Hollywood theme to the Parade which should be very glamorous. If there are any Hollywood stars in Welwyn on the day, please get in touch with us and we’ll invite you to join the judges panel. You may even see an homage to yourself in our parade…
The parade will be followed by Family Fun Day at Singler’s Marsh on Codicote Road at the northerly edge of the village, just across the road from the where the Street Market will take place the previous weekend.
Lots more plans to tell you about over the coming weeks and months… keep in touch with developments via Facebook, Twitter and our website/news. Printed programmes will be available during June from various local shops and outlets. The advertisements from local businesses and services that we publish in the programme help raise funds for local charities so we hope you can support them in return.
A couple of dates for your diary:
- The Street Market: 9ish to noon-ish, Saturday 20th June 2015
- Parade and Family Fun Day, from 1pm, Saturday 27th June 2015
See you there!!
