In addition to the castle tours, there will be a brass band playing on the castle lawn and refreshment and cake stand provided by St John Ambulance.

Entry to the event is free, although donations to the Mayor's charities, Carers in Hertfordshire and Herts Young Homeless, are very welcome.

Councillor Jane Sartin, the chairman of Hertford Town Council's development and leisure committee, said: "Every time the Castle is open to visitors we see people who have lived locally for many years but have never visited the Castle.

"This is an opportunity not only to see inside but to learn about the Castle's history with a guided tour.
