Festival 2010 Report

The Radlett Festival this year went with a swing as the weekend of 12/13th June has good weather and a good turnout of residents. The concert on Saturday night unfortunately coincided with England’s first game in the World Cup, so we lost a few potential concert-goers there, but was a very enjoyable evening including a choir from our potential Hungarian twin town, Dunaharaszti, near Budapest.

Sunday dawned fair and the sun shone on Radlett again for a great turn out of residents and friends for the traditional Village Fair. The MAD mountain Bike display team were extremely popular and we were royally entertained by Ian Scott, as Tom Jones during the afternoon. A new venture for the Fair was the Soap Box Derby, organised by Sandra and Graham Taylor, which was very popular and definitely worth repeating another year. The top raffle prize of a trip to New York was won by the Zonneveld family and we look forward to reading about their trip later!

The Festival weekend raised around £4000 for local good causes, of which we donated £1000 from the concert proceeds to the Peace Hospice in Watford.
