Hertford Eco Fest is a new event to raise awareness amongst as many people as possible of the small changes we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint and save money.

It will be held at Hertford Castle on Sunday 22nd September, as part of a two-week programme of Hertford town wide sustainability events. 

Visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of fun activities, music and food and drinks stalls will feature alongside information and education around money saving ideas and carbon reduction. This event seeks to engage the whole town in a necessary and positive communal purpose.

Hertford Town Council declared a Climate Emergency in July 2023 and has committed to taking action to protect human health and our natural world to the maximum extent its powers allow. We therefore encourage people to come to our events by public or active transport.

Please visit National Rail for live train times and Intalink for bus routes.

Toilets are located to the side of the main lawn on the footpath by the Ashley Webb Shelter. 

Disabled toilets & baby changing facilities are available inside the castle, please speak to a volunteer on the door for access. 

First aid will be provided by St John's Ambulance and will be located by the Ashley Webb shelter.

Dogs are welcome, however they must be kept on a lead at all times and we kindly ask that dog waste is picked up and put in the bins provided.
