On Friday 8th May 2015, there will be an evening event hosted by Hertford Town Council and Hertfordshire County Council to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, where a specially commissioned beacon will be lit on the roof of Hertford Castle.

 

All are invited to bring a picnic along to the Castle grounds from 9.00 p.m. to take part in the celebrations, with Hertford Voices Choir providing the entertainment and refreshments will be available on the lawn.

 

The beacon will be lit at 9.32 pm, as part of a chain of over 100 beacons being lit across the UK.

 

The Mayor, Cllr. Miss Chantal Geall said, “This will be a moving occasion, both a celebration of peace and a chance to reflect on the sacrifice by so many to give us the peace that we all take for granted today.”
