On Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14, a talent show, fair, and parade came to Marford Playing Fields at the Wheathampstead Village Weekend.

The parade was led by St Albans district council mayor, Cllr Janet Smith, and was themed Music Through the Ages.

Entertainment throughout the weekend ranged from early English dance to Bollywood and ballet, as well as the popular Dog and Duck Show and music from Ware Brass.

Many village clubs and societies were represented at the event, which ended on a bang with a fireworks display.
