Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation

Organise your own celebration

There is real pride and much affection for the garden city among its residents who recognise the town as a great place to live, to work, and to raise a family.  The Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation has been established to help devise and coordinate a programme of events and volunteers to celebrate 100 years of Welwyn Garden City in 2020.

We are bringing together residents and businesses, old and new, past and present, to play a part in making Welwyn Garden City 2020 a success.

As a company, organisation or individual with links to the garden city, this is your opportunity to get involved and be part of this once in a century celebration.

The vision is:

  • To celebrate Ebenezer Howard’s vision and ethos for healthy living and a ‘true marriage of town and country’;
  • To promote WGC as a desirable destination to live, work and play;
  • To gain town-wide appreciation and pride in WGC, with associated involvement of schools and other stakeholders to ensure an ongoing legacy;
  • To provide promotional and economic opportunities which will benefit WGC and Hertfordshire businesses.


The Foundation is organising and funding a programme of Signature Events throughout 2020, if you would like to organise your own Satellite Event we would delighted. To help you plan and run an event we have created a toolkit, available to download below along with our official logo.

Protecting our brand

The Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation has been formed to celebrate Ebenezer Howard’s vision and ethos for healthy living.  The celebrations in 2020 are rooted in the community, with a desire to create a legacy for the benefit of garden citizens into its second century.

We are happy for any organisation to use the Welwyn Garden City 100 logo, providing its use is aligned with the values of the Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation.  We reserve the right to withdraw this permission at any time.
