Motorists warned of delays ahead of Hatfield firework display
PEOPLE attending tonight’s (Friday) firework display at Hatfield House are being warned to expect traffic delays.
Signs are already up on the main roads around the stately home, warning motorists of congestions from 4pm.
Visitors are being asked by organisers to arrive early to try and alleviate similar problems experienced at last year’s display – when there were big queues of traffic at both the start and end of the event.
Gates open at 5pm tonight.
WHT editor Terry Mitchinson will be judging the best Guy competition and throwing the winning entry on the bonfire, which will be lit by Lord Salisbury at 6.45pm.
