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 2pm on the Saturday and is the perfect opportunity for dancers, singers, comedians and so many more types of performers to showcase their talents. This year we want to open it up to adults as well as children as we all know that Wheathampstead most definitely DOES have talent!

Do you want to perform? This could be your opportunity to share your musical, entertainment and dancing talent on the stage! This year, the applications for this event will be posted on our website, social media and via the local schools.

You can email Hannah Costin at to add you act to the auditions line up.

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 4pm on Saturday and concludes at 9.30pm

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
