Knebworth festival starts on Saturday

THIS year’s Knebworth Festival promises to offer fun for all the family.

A range of activities will take place throughout the duration of the event, which starts on Saturday with a village fete and comedy night.

There will also be a mobile treasure hunt, a concert given by WGC Male Voice Choir, a flower-arranging demonstration and a fashion show.

But one of the highlights of the event will surely be a lecture given by former war correspondent and independent MP Martin Bell OBE, which will be staged at Knebworth Village Hall next Wednesday.

Tickets for his 8pm talk, entitled The Expenses Scandal, the Election and the Future of Politics, cost �6 each.

The eight day festival then draws to a close on Sunday, June 27, at Knebworth House.

There will be a reception on the terrace at 7pm, before a poetry reading by actor Colin Greenslade at 8pm. Musical interludes will be provided by cellist Catherine Wilmers.
