Wheathampstead unites for village day
ZULU warriors, Chinese acrobats, Indian drummers and Hertfordshire’s Rock Choir will bring a cosmopolitan feel to a Village Day on Sunday.
Wheathampstead Village Day will get underway with a parade of floats from local schools, pubs and community groups.
They will be accompanied by the acrobats, drummers and warriors as they parade down Wheathampstead High Street from 1pm, ending up at Marford Playing Fields. This is different from the time given to the Herts Advertiser for publication this week.
For the first time this year, Village Day will include the World Comes to Wheathampstead, featuring local businesses that will be sampling food and wine from around the world along with information about holidays in far flung places, including a prize draw which will give the winner a �4,000 holiday to South Africa.
Another first for Village Day will be a Mad Science Workshop run by Cambridge University in the Memorial Hall all afternoon, offering the chance for children to try their hand at fun and slightly mad experiments.

Village Day Chair Cllr Judy Shardlow said: “This is going to be a really action packed day. Our Chinese acrobats will be performing a Lion Dance in the Arena, we also have Dhol drummers and bhangra dancers and a 130 strong Rock Choir who will be singing live. Village Day is a fun family day with something for all ages and interests,”
