SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
Letchworth is gearing up for a brilliant, family friendly festival this weekend.
Our town's Beer, Food and Music Festival runs across Saturday, (September 24) and Sunday, (September 25).
The eagerly-awaited event in the heart of our town will feature live music, food stalls and a convivial atmosphere, with a large number of town centre businesses welcoming visitors.
Letchworth: An exciting new exhibition launches this weekend.
Near and Far: New Works by Vanessa Stone opens on Saturday (September 24) at Museum at One Garden City.
Previewing her event, Vanessa said: "So here it is! I am delighted to announce a new solo exhibition of completely new Letchworth pieces that opens [on Saturday].
"I have been making these works since the beginning of 2022 and have been longing to properly show them. You all know how much I love Letchworth and its buildings.
"Moving away hasn't really dented that - there is a magnetic pull that never seems to go as I suppose there are so many memories there and the buildings and spaces are beautiful."
The talented creative adds: "I will be there on the opening day from 11am til 3pm so I would love it if you would come and say hello and make my day."
SATURDAY: Extended by popular demand!
This special must-visit exhibition in the Museum at One Garden City explores the fascinating life and work of one of Britain's most influential designers, at Ogle Design in Letchworth and beyond.
Drawing on items from the Garden City Collection, the V&A Museum, donations from former Ogle employees and Tom's own extensive collections, the exhibition aims to capture a sense of Tom's charm and ingenuity in design.
No need to book, just pop in whenever you're passing!
Now extended until Spring 2023
