With nine live bands on the main stage and eight solo artists, duos and trios on the Hertford House Hotel Acoustic Stage, Hertford Castle features a line-up ranging from hard rock to pop, country rock to ska and indie, with local 'supergroup' The Hertford Allstars closing the show as usual with a blistering set of rock covers.

Neil and Jess Drummond from The Guitar Studio in Railway Street, are behind the brand new artists' hospitality tent and are also generously providing the guitar amplifiers and drum kit for the day.

Admission is by suggested voluntary donation of £2, with all proceeds going to the 2nd Bengeo Scouts. The group, established over 70 years ago, plan to build a new Scout Hut for use by the local community, which funds will go towards.

As always, the edges of the lawn will be packed with activities for kids of all ages such as a Bouncy Castle, Face Painting, Balloons, and a giant Joust game - as well as a licensed bar and a feast of food franchises.

Parking is available nearby in St.Andrew Street car park or any of the town's other car parks.
