If you haven't yet downloaded your copy of the Hitchin Festival 2016 programme, get along to www.hitchinherts.com now!
There's so much happening for adults, children and the whole family together.
Start on Saturday 2 July with Independents today. Your chance to celebrate all that's great from our local retailers and restaurants: 10am-4pm in the Market Place.
Alongside the Festival itself, there's lots from www.rotw.org.uk to celebrate 25 years of Rhythms of the World.
The whole of July will be alive with music, arts, culture and - of course - some of the best food and drink - until the closing night with Collaboro at St Mary's Church.
Locations across the town are taking part, so there's plenty on offer for everyone.
