Family fun in Letchworth this summer…
A guest blog from Heather at the Local and Tourist Information Centre
Here in the TIC we can’t believe it’s July already! The summer holidays are fast approaching, and lots of parents and grandparents too will be looking for fun activities to fill the weeks between now and September. Luckily, Letchworth has lots on offer!
It may be June, but winter is coming to Letchworth…
Two Letchworth producers are bringing the first show of their fledgling theatre company to Broadway Theatre on 4 June, the final performance of their UK tour.
Samantha Lyden and Sally Reichardt, who run Pigtail Productions, both grew up in the area and attended local schools including Lordship, Pixmore and St Christopher. Now they are coming home to Letchworth to present The Tap Dancing Mermaid featuring a mix of hand-crafted puppets and original live music.
