The foundation of HitchinTV – supporting our local area
Hitchin is a historic but happening market town, not far from London, Luton and Cambridge. The town is home to progressive entrepreneurship, with a large number of original and successful independent businesses, while the market and individual boutiques thrive alongside high-street favourites and charity shops. Hitchin has a buoyant cultural scene, with music schools, theatres and galleries. There are competitively active clubs for rugby, cricket, football, hockey, cycling and running, as well as a number of gyms and bootcamps. And residents and visitors enjoy an extensive range of excellent pubs, clubs and restaurants.
Hitchinites are hugely proud of their hometown, while newcomers are amazed by the welcoming and outgoing nature of the local people and businesses.
