Hertford Pride Family Day

Hertford Town Council are delighted to be hosting their first ever Pride event ‘Hertford Family Pride Day’.

FREE to attend, this event aims to bring the local community together, in a safe and welcoming environment; to celebrate inclusion and diversity in Hertford with the simple message:


Set on the picturesque main lawn at Hertford Castle, the day will include:

  • Support and information stalls, including a ‘Conversation Corner’, which will be a safe space to meet like-minded people, ask questions and gain support. 
  • An ‘Express Yourself’ area dedicated to music, dance and dress up. 
  • A diverse line up of entertainment including music, theatre and drag artist ‘Sophia Stardust’.
  • Plus! We're excited to announce, special guest and winner of C4's The Hunter, Jaxon Feeley, will be joining us for the day's celebrations. 

There will also be food and drink stalls, face painting, festival hair braiding and glitter tattoos, local charity representatives and the Castle will be open for visitors to explore free of charge.
