Hertford Castle Live Music Event

- -

Hertford Castle, Hertford, United Kingdom

For one year only, Rock at the Castle will make way for the new Hertford Castle Live Music Event 2021. 

Rock at the Castle has been postponed until we can be confident that we can bring the well-known and highly popular event to you in a safe and secure way. 

Instead, for 2021, we are bringing you a new Live Music Event. Guests can sit back and relax on the Main Castle Lawn and enjoy a diversity of live music from local musicians.

This event has been ticketed to allow capacities to be monitored whilst remaining Covid compliant. This will allow the event to still take place if, for any reason, we are placed back under stage 3 restrictions.

Pre-booked tickets will be guaranteed entry before 3pm only.

Please ensure you read the Booking Terms and Conditions below (including the alcohol policy) before booking your tickets.

By booking a ticket or attending this event, you agree to adhere to the terms and conditions of this event.
