Local groups will be taking to the stage at Broadway Theatre for a series of performances as part of this year’s Letchworth Festival.
The theatre will host 11 shows during the two-week festival, celebrating the variety of creative talent in the town.
Sue Scott Davison, Creative Programmer for the Broadway Theatre, has been working with community groups to finalise the programme. She said: “After a great opening season, it’s great to now put the spotlight on local talent and open our doors for local groups to enjoy these fantastic facilities. This is a chance for them to shine so I hope Letchworth will be out in force to show their support for these and other events that have been organised for Letchworth Festival.”
The programme includes a variety of acts, with live drama from SPADS, a combined Interfaith event with dancing and drama, children’s shows, concerts and comedy.
Akua Obeng-Frimpong, chair of the Letchworth Festival Committee said: "Having a programme of community events at the Broadway is an exciting development for Letchworth Festival. The festival values the venue as a resource for showcasing the town's creative and cultural talent and we are delighted about the opportunity for audiences as well as local creatives.”
The festival gets underway on 11 June with a performance from Letchworth’s largest community choir, City Chorus, who will be singing an eclectic mix of songs from Gershwin to Pharrell Williams in their own unique choral style.
