On Saturday, August 4, a huge crowd of people took to Oakmere Park for the Movies in the Park event.

The event, which has been running in Hertsmere for five years, was the “busiest by far” this year according to the organisers.

Film fanatics watched Boss Baby and The Greatest Showman while also enjoying a bar.

Jill Hellary, from Potters Bar, went along with her friends and said she highly “enjoyed” the film selection.
