The Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation was set up to organise the plans, and is in the process of applying for charitable status.
Early ideas to commemorate the event include an art and sculpture exhibition showcasing local talent, a sporting festival involving local clubs, a 12k centenary walk and a garden flower show to celebrate the town’s heritage.
There are also plans for a music and performing arts festival, a carnival, a royal visit and a heritage centre, which will provide the public with information on WGC’s relatively short but illustrious history.
Proposals to restore The Dell, a nature hollow in Sherrardspark Wood previously used as an open-air theatre, have been put forward so concerts and theatre productions could be performed there.
Foundation member, Dennis Lewis MBE, said he hoped the centenary celebrations would “leave a legacy, inspire generation and put WGC on the world map”.
“The aim is to celebrate 100 years of the history of WGC not just as a town but as a concept in town and country planning, and also to look forward 100 years,” he said.
“It’s a great place to live, work and play, a great place to raise a family and to enjoy good fresh air and overall to enjoy a good quality of life.”
In 1920, Welwyn Garden City Limited was formed to plan and build the Garden City, and it was then founded by Sir Ebenezer Howard, founder of the garden city movement.
