Welwyn Festival 2021 - 25th June - 3rd July

We are pleased to announce a 2021 Mini Welwyn Festival with safe socially distanced events, see our events page for details

Events Programme


Due to Covid restrictions, we are running a 'Mini' Welwyn Festival, June 25th - July 3rd 2021. We will not be producing a printed or downloadable programme. We also hope to run some additional events later in the year. We will aim to keep this page updated and include as many events as we can, so check back for updates regularly.

Check our Facebook page for any last-minute additions/changes.


So, between 25th June – 3rd July, there’ll be something taking place locally for everyone to participate in and enjoy (safely and within current guidelines).


Most are free to enter* but we would still like to try and raise money for the local charities who missed out last year. If you wish to donate any amount, please go to https://www.welwynfestival.org.uk/donate which links to the donation page on this website.
