Village Weekend 2019
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.
Do you want to perform?
This is your opportunity to share your musical, entertainment and dancing talent on the stage!
Entries for 2019 have now closed, as all available spaces have been filled. If you/your child wishes to take part, a space may become available if someone drops out. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the waiting list.
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 5pm and concludes at 10.30pm following 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.
