Hertford Castle Live Music Event

Posted in Press Release
Live Music Event 2021

Hertford Town Council will be hosting a new free Live Music Event on the Hertford Castle Lawn on Sunday 1st August 2021. 

This new event replaces Rock at the Castle for 2021. Hertford Town Council took the decision to postpone Rock at the Castle until confident that the event can be run in an entirely safe and secure way. So, for one year only, Rock at the Castle will make way for the new Hertford Castle Live Music Event 2021.

Guests can sit back and relax on the Castle Lawn and enjoy a variety of live music from local musicians, from 12:30pm to 7pm, with the beautiful backdrop of the castle on a summer day. Stalls will be available to keep guests refreshed. 

This event will be ticketed to allow capacities to be monitored. Guests are strongly encouraged to pre-book tickets to guarantee entry on the day up to 3pm. Any remaining availability will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis for walk-ins on the day.

The event is free to attend, however guests are welcome to donate to the Mayor of Hertford’s Appeal Fund which this year supports Isabel Hospice and Samaritans Ware.

Hertford Town Council continue to monitor Government guidance in relation to running events. Any measures required will be announced on the website.

Hertford Town Council is grateful to our sponsors this year, McMullen’s Brewery.

Cllr Jane Sartin, Chairman of Hertford Town Council’s Development and Leisure Committee, said: "Whilst it’s sad that Rock at the Castle cannot take place this year, I am pleased that Hertford Town Council is able to bring a different type of music event to the grounds of Hertford Castle on 1st August, which I’m sure will be enjoyed by people of all ages".
