Church takes centre stage at Knebworth Village Festival

A CHURCH took centre stage at the “heart of the community” at the colourful and lively Knebworth Village Festival.

St Martin’s Church was the venue for a veritable smorgasbord of singing and dancing over the weekend.

Chairman Brian Worthington told the WHT: “It was tremendous, we had music in St Martin’s Church which was unique.

“It’s the first time we’ve done music in St Martin’s in the way we did it.

“We took out all the pews from the church and created a raised concert hall.
