Performances will be accessible and interactive, with a mix of static and walkabout acts in a rolling programme throughout the day.

Cllr Terry Mitchinson, executive member for leisure, culture and communications at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, said: "This year's BIG Summer is going to be even bigger, better and longer than the previous two years. There will be hundreds of activities on offer for toddlers to teens - and everyone in between."
