During the early years of Welwyn Garden City, the residents performed plays in Sherrardspark Wood at a place known as The Dell. The Dell is stuated close to todays Reddings in what was called Reddings Plantation.

Productions of Mid Summer Nights Dream were performed in 1925, The Tempest in 1926 and Twelfth Night in 1936/37. 

The Dell can still be found but is now very much overgrown though the seating terraces are still discernable.
