Cars at the Castle is one of the largest FREE vehicle shows in Hertfordshire, with an exhibition of over 60 modern to vintage cars and motorcycles, set within the picturesque grounds of Herford Castle. 

This highly popular, family-friendly, annual event will take place on Sunday 2nd June from 12.00 noon to 4.00pm. With live music, food and drink stalls and the Castle open for the public to explore, there is something for everyone. 

NEW for 2024, in collaboration with British Cycling, the Island Lawn will be transformed into a mini 'CycloCross' track. Designed for novices, visitors are invited to bring along their own bike and give it a try for free! Helmets are required and gloves are recommended. Hertford based business, Highway Cycles, will also have a stand on the Island Lawn with a selection of their electric bikes which visitors will be able to enjoy. 

During the event, the Mayor of Hertford will be joined by the event sponsors Gates Ltd and G3 Pro from Farécla to judge and award trophies to the vehicle owners as part of the annual car competition. The categories include best paint work, best interior, best post-1970 car, best pre-1970 car, best British and best foreign car. 

The new Mayor of Hertford, Cllr Rachel Carter, said: “This is one of Hertford Town Council’s most popular events, with lots for all the family to do. I’m really looking forward to seeing all this year’s exhibits and meeting everyone for a fun afternoon on the Castle grounds.” 

Event Sponsor Gates Ltd said: “Gates is a family-owned and operated Ford Main Dealer with dealerships across Hertfordshire, Essex, and London. Established in 1920, they have been involved in many local and community events over the years with 2024 being no exception. Gates is delighted to be sponsoring “Cars at the Castle” in Hertford and will be present on the day with a selection of New Ford Cars on display. Gates’ Events Team is also excited to see the array of classic cars that will be exhibited and we look forward to meeting local car enthusiasts and awarding trophies during the day.”
