Hertford Carnival Fun Day 18

The date; Sunday 24 June 2018

The venue; The Castle

Roll up, Roll up

This year we are again following the our funday at the Castle format.

From 12 - 5pm, there will be stalls, entertainment and refreshments at the Castle.

The stalls we are lining up include crowd-pleasing favourites and ones new for 2018, and of course performers who can entertain us as we sup beer and eat pizza in the sun!

There is no procession again this year; see here. Nor are we currently running the fancy dress competition for children.
