You are invited to a Quintessential English Affair

This is a brand-new event for the community and visitors to celebrate the wonderful Welwyn Garden City and enjoy a fun day out with the family.

Cream Teas
Tewin Bury Farm Hotel are joining forces with the WGC Centenary Foundation to delight anyone who fancies popping in to the marquee for a scone and tea with a proportion of funds going to charity.


Whilst enjoying your treat you will be able to listen to the live acoustic music, sure to get those toes tapping! For the grown ups there will also be a Pimms bar on site.

Grand Makes Tipi
Crafting workshops will take place throughout the day giving people opportunity to have a go at something new, without the expense of buying lots of materials and equipment.


Workshops are mainly £2.50 and to guarantee a seat at the crafting table, please book your tickets online at Workshops include origami, knitting pom poms and floristry to name but a few.


Bake off Competition
Entry to the competition is free and there are 3 categories: best garden themed cake, best presentation and best tasting.


Whole or individual cakes can be entered and need to be presented by 1pm for judging at 1.30pm. At 2pm the winners will be announced, and the cakes sold for donations to charity. For more details visit


Craft Stalls
Welwyn Garden City love to support local businesses, so we’ve invited a number to showcase in a marquee, from handmade prints and jewellery to chutneys and jams. You will be able to experience Rituals demonstrating their amazing products and why not join volunteers from the UK Hand Knitting Association and Welwyn Garden City

Knitting Group to learn new crafty skills including finger knitting and basic crochet.  An expert will also be on hand for any knitting conundrums you might have. And of course, there will be plants to buy and take home to adorn your garden.

Children’s entertainment
Bring the kids along to enjoy meeting their favourite mascots, where they can have pictures taken and enjoy free prints to take home. There’ll also be free face painting and glitter tattoos as part of the days fun alongside craft workshops they can attend in the tipi (advisable to pre-book online).

This is your chance to slow things down, take a break and enjoy our beautiful Garden City.
