After a successful 2019 the Heritage Day is back at Hertford Castle in conjunction with the National Heritage Weekend programme. The lawn will host medieval encampments, bouncy castles, historical information stalls and birds of prey.
The Archery workshop will be back where you can have a go at wielding the bow and arrow.
The performance arena will host Viking battles, re-enactments, storytelling and falconry displays to keep you entertained throughout the afternoon.
Don’t forget to head inside the Castle to explore the original parts of the building, including the robing room, and then head down to the basement to check out the themed rooms.
This event is free of charge, but donations are welcome, raising money for the Mayor of Hertford’s Charity.
