Hertford Castle will be the backdrop to three Open Air Cinema screenings on the Castle Lawn on Friday 19th August, organised by Hertford Town Council.

‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ and ‘Encanto’ will screen during the day for children and families, and ‘The Bodyguard’ will be the evening showing, suitable for adults.

Performance times are as follows:

Raya and the Last Dragon - 10am (gates open at 9am)

Encanto - 2pm (gates open at 1pm)

The Bodyguard - 7pm (gates open at 6pm)

Visitors are invited to pitch up their picnic chairs and bring their own food and drink, or enjoy the refreshments available to purchase from food and drink stalls throughout the screenings.

It is encouraged that tickets are purchased in advance of the event.

They are priced at £3 each for the family daytime performances of Raya and the Last Dragon and Encanto, and £7 each for the evening screening of The Bodyguard.

Tickets are available online at www.hertford.gov.uk/events and from Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre in the town centre, or over the phone on 01992 584322.

The event is sponsored by Durkan.

The Chairman of the Development and Leisure Committee, Cllr Jane Sartin, said: “Hertford Castle is a great backdrop to watch a film, and the two children’s films showing during the day will provide a great summer holiday activity. The Bodyguard, which will screen in the evening, was a film requested by people who have attended the event in previous years, and I’m sure will make for a great evening’s entertainment at the Castle.”
