Walsworth Festival Timeline
The Walsworth Festival was founded by St Faith’s Church in 1974. The first festival began in a modest way with a “Miss Walsworth”, a procession and a service.
Also in 1975, St Faiths held an Arts and Crafts display in the church, at which members of the congregation were able to show off their skills:2
