Things to Look Forward to in 2022

With 2021 coming to a close it leaves us all scratching our heads and twiddling our thumbs as to what the New Year will bring. There’s 12 months ahead of us so it’s time to get out those diaries and mark in the dates for those MUST see/do events for 2022…and trust me you’re not going to want to miss them!

Summer in Hatfield

Hatfield House is hosting some incredible MUST SEE events in 2022! Kickstarting the Summer celebrations with The Battle Proms, The Proclaimers headlining Folk by the Oak (I would definitely walk 500 miles to see them) and The Libertines. Oh yes the list does go on with the legendary duo, Tears For Fears, Simply Red and an evening spent with Michael Buble! Did we forget to mention Paloma Faith has announced her huge UK summer tour in 2022 and it just so happens Hatfield park is ready and waiting for her arrival!

Hatfield’s bringing the heat

Knebworth Great British Food Festival

A combination of the things we love most in life…food and festivals, but trust us when we say the Great British Food Festival is going to bring flavour, entertainment and adventure to your 2022. Learn a little more about how to improve your chef skills with live chef demos. Or, maybe you’d much prefer to be eating the food rather than watching it being made, if so you won’t be able to resist the variety of different cuisines, with a BBQ stage, Street Food and the Artisans Market all available to enjoy at this foodie festival! You can dance the day away and show off those dance moves whilst listening to a variety of live bands and soloists, if not sit back and relax with a refreshing drink and some delicious food and enjoy the day laughing at...we mean along with those party groovers. Now we’ve mentioned the food and groove but there is so much more to discover! Without forgetting to mention your four-legged friends are invited too!

Foodie Heaven

Herts Big Weekend

With final dates and participating venues for next year’s event yet to be confirmed, it leaves it up to our imagination as to what the prizes may be. Let’s just say experiences on offer in 2021 looked pretty exciting!
