Corona-virus Update

We are so sorry to announce that the 2020 Welwyn Festival is cancelled due to the Covid 19 outbreak. Although we very much hope that the situation in the UK will have improved enormously by the end of June, nothing is certain, so we have made the difficult decision to cancel all events.

Street Parade


The Street Parade kicks off the Family Fun day. It starts at the civic centre, at 12.30pm and meanders down the High street, finishing at Singlers Marsh. The theme changes every year. 2020’s theme is ‘Tell me a story’.





The Street parade is a lovely opportunity for local schools, pre-schools and nurseries to dress up and have fun. With a marching band and decorated float accompanying the children and parents, the sense of community is very strong.
