In the early days of Welwyn Garden City, plays and other events took place at
Sherrardspark Wood in an area called the Dell.
At the time they received wide acclaim for not just the quality of the productions but also the remarkable natural venue within the woods.
A booklet has now been produced, written by Robert Gill and published by the Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation , which provides the history of the Dell, how it came about, what went on and the situation today.
The Barn Theatre has a privacy notice which can be viewed here
