Motor on down to Hertford’s largest free car show of the year set within the picturesque castle grounds. Exhibiting up to 40 modern and vintage cars, there will be plenty to marvel over. There will be food and refreshment stalls, fuelling an afternoon of family fun.

Want To Exhibit Your Car?

Due to government restrictions the number of cars able to display has been limited. We are now fully booked for display cars and our waitlist is also full.
