Imagine Watford’s middle weekend took place at King George V playing fields & the town centre in Watford. A small venue next to the cricket ground and the cycle hub. The last weekend is at Garston Park and the town centre on the 17/18th July.
More information can be found on the Imagine Watford link below. The performances are free so just turn up. Curated by the Palace Theatre and funded by Watford Council & Arts Council. Watford is lucky to have this annual free event in the town.
Despite the weather which was light rain on and off, everyone seemed to have fun. The kids especially loved the balloons. Here are some photos of the three performances that took place at King George V playing fields with lots more on my Flickr link below.
