Welcome to Letchworth Arts and Leisure Group!

Welcome to LALG, with over 100 groups and events plus discounts in around 50 local shops and businesses.

LALG groups cover everything from art to walking, Shakespeare to computing and languages to quizzes, so there should be something for everyone. And if there isn't, we can start a new group! Find a group now.

All welcome, admission £3 for LALG members, £4 for non-members.

Judy Garland - in her own words

Tue, 15/02/2022 - 7:15pm

Judy Garland, born Frances Ethel Gumm, was one of the greatest stars of the twentieth century. From her breakthrough role as Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ to her untimely death in London in 1969, she was rarely out of the news, out of the gossip columns or off the radio or TV. That her private life was far from happy is a matter of public record. In this talk, illustrated with many of her recordings, we will hear from Judy herself, in interview and in private.
The talk will start promptly at 7.30 with participants being allowed into the zoom room 10 minutes in advance. To give the best experience participants will be muted with cameras turned off during the talk.

The Broadway Gallery. A Talk by Kristian Day

Tue, 25/01/2022 - 7:30pm

Kristian Day took over the Broadway Gallery in Leys Avenue just before the art industry was devastated by the spread of Covid-19, meaning his plans for the space and the Arts in Hertfordshire ended before they could begin. Over the last two years however the gallery has gone from imminent closure to the centre of a thriving art scene with an ambitious vision for the future.
