THE clocks go forward this weekend and, with that in mind, we look forward to sdme of the events planned for summer in Times Territory.

Potters Bar Carnival takes place on June 8 in Canada Life Place, Potters Bar.

Organiser Sue Walker said: "Last year we had 4,000 people there and it is always a fantastic day with incredible atmosphere.

"Much relies on the weather being good but expect lots of floats, happy people and good fun."

Festival fanatics will be pleased to know that the Kaleidoscope event will be taking place again this year.

The Welwyn Hatfield Ethnic Minority group will be hosting the festival at Stanborough Park, WGC on July 19

Eliud Matindi, co-ordinator of the group, said: "Yet again we will be providing an opportunity for people to come together under the area's cultural umbrella," he said.

"There will be loads of children's activities, music stages and food stalls from all around the world."

Hatfield House thrives on the summer months with many events already booked into its busy calendar.

The main event at Hatfield's country estate is the Battle Proms which takes place on July 26.

Fireworks, classical music and cavalry charges will have you waving that Union flag frantically to the final verse of Land of Hope and Glory.

Knebworth House has its usual array of events planned throughout the season, ranging from classic car events to country fairs and more.
