Feature Act – H-Town Classic & Dub Club

One of the acts we have here at this years Walsworth Festival also has separate regular meet up events. It was set up to unite fans of classic vehicles through meeting in and around Hitchin. It’s a great place to meet like minded people from around Hitchin, share tips, parts and get advice. This year we have a scaled back meet up of some cool cars. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
