Walsworth Festival Timeline

1974

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

The festival started as a week long event with a Sunday Spectacular to finish the event which included a procession along Woolgrove road. Thanks to Jeff Scarber for the photos.

We then jump to more current times.  There was a good attendance with something to entertain each member of the family, old and young alike.

More pictures and nostalgia can be found on the St Faiths Church site for 2009 and 2010.
