The Herts Big Weekend

What is Herts Big Weekend?

The Herts Big Weekend forms part of the national English Tourism Week celebrations and helps to promote Hertfordshire to the wider world through the county's biggest advocates - its residents. In 2017 - the campaign's 2nd Big Weekend celebration - the event had over 19,000 ticket applications for hundreds of tickets and experiences donated by over 50 tourism businesses. As part of English Tourism Week the Big Weekend helps to raise the profile of tourism as an important sector in the local economy and gain the support of the local community.

February saw the public ballot open, and Visit Herts provide a toolkit and guidance for businesses participating in the Big Weekend celebrations. Included in this toolkit is a list of key dates, details of how you can check your ticket offer, guidance on how ticket allocation will work, important links, and a guide to how you can promote your attraction and the Herts Big Weekend.

Herts Big Weekend is now over for 2017 but will return in 2018
