Wheathampstead’s favourite annual event takes place on a weekend in July and includes three events:
Wheathampstead’s Got Talent
This event takes place at the Meads at 3pm on Saturday and is the perfect opportunity for young dancers, singers, comedians and so many more types of performers to showcase their talents.
Entry is free and applications are sent out via the local schools.
Picnic on the Meads
Following the success of the Jubilee picnic at the Meads in 2012, Picnic on the Meads has become a regular feature of Village Weekend. With a variety of live music and food vendors, families can come together to dance, drink and eat.
The event begins at 6pm and concludes at 10pm with a firework display that is sponsored by many local businesses.
Village Day has a true community feel – local organisations, charities, performers, food vendors and entertainers come together to create the perfect family day out. The day also includes ‘Best Allotment’ awards.
The event, which takes place on Marford Playing Fields, starts at 1pm with a parade through the High Street. Entertainment is provided throughout the afternoon, with the event ending at 5pm.
