Village Weekend

As you may already be aware, we were unable to have Village Weekend in 2020.

We have however have begun to discuss the possibility of having Village Weekend 2021! We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will able to at least hold part of our normal events, but the situation remains unclear. 

Keep an eye on our social media (you can find the buttons at the bottom of this page) or this page of our website for updates.

What does Village Weekend involve?

Wheathampstead’s favourite annual event takes place in July and includes three events – two on Saturday and one on Sunday.

Wheathampstead’s Got Talent

This event normally takes place at the Meads at 3pm on the 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 could be your opportunity to share your musical, entertainment and dancing talent on the stage! Each year, the applications for this event are posted on our website, social media and via the local schools.

You can email 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 on Saturday and concludes at 10.30pm following a firework display that is sponsored by many local businesses.

Village Day

Sunday is always Village Day. This event 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
