Christmas events

‘Twas a few weeks before Christmas, and after quite the year,
Visit Herts was searching for some festive cheer,
We searched for christmas events that would bring us some joy
And the businesses gave us gifts worth more than any toy

From carols in the cathedral and a nativity show,
To becoming an elf and helping Santa's reindeer go,
Some are in person and some are online,
But we’ll make the most of it with mince pies and mulled wine

It might not be the way it’s normally done,
But our businesses are brilliant - they’re second to none!
We hope our Christmas events leave you cheery and bright,
So Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night…

Remember, when out be sure to follow the latest government guidelines regarding travel within your tier.

Festive feasts at Brocket Hall
