Hertford Castle's regular Cars At The Castle event is set to take place on Sunday (6th June), opening the town council's season of events in the castle grounds.

The show runs from noon until 4pm and will feature hot and cold food concessions and a bar.

The cars will be exhibited on the lawn, with Hertford Castle as their backdrop. Hertford Castle will be closed during the event, but with over 35 cars to look at there will still be plenty to see.

The range of vehicles on the day will include Porsche, Ford, Triumph, Lotus, Cadillac and Toyota amongst others all of varying ages.

During the event the Mayor of Hertford, Cllr Bob Deering, will be judging and awarding trophies to the car owners. The categories include best paint work, best interior, best post 1970 car, best pre1970 car, best British and best foreign car.

Councillor Bob Deering, Mayor of Hertford said: "I had the honour of judging the cars the last time we held Cars at the Castle so I know from first-hand experience that it’s a great event. We get a terrific range of vehicles and some very nice owners and car enthusiasts too. It’s a really enjoyable afternoon so do come along if you can."

The show is a COVID-19 Secure Event In line with Government guidance. This includes a one-way system allowing visitors to view each exhibit and ensuring everyone remains at a safe social distance. Guests will be allowed to enter the event in groups of up to ten friends and family at a time, and will be expected to adhere to social distancing rules at all times. Guests will also be required to provide details for test and trace as per Government guidelines.
