A VILLAGE fete helped kick-start a week-long festival in Knebworth on Saturday.

Festival organiser Brian Worthington said: "The weather was pretty grim but the whole village came out."

A Sixties night was also a sell out in the village hall with everyone enjoying themselves.

However, Mr Worthington said the week's highlight takes place at the festival finale on Sunday with a concert in the banqueting hall at Knebworth House.

He said: "This really is unique, you can't buy tickets to see the banqueting hall normally, this really is a one-off."

The concert of opera and light show tunes begins with drinks on the terrace.
