Events in Watford This Summer

Posted on

Summer is just around the corner, so many of us will be starting to think about how we can make the most of the great weather we will (hopefully) be having. One of the ways we might want to do this is by attending some great events, and Watford has a wealth of these coming up.

Here at Jaspers Hire Ltd, we are event hire specialists, so we’ve put together a list of some of our favourites coming up in Watford. Continue reading to find out more.

Watford Big Events

Watford Big Events’ is a series of events, funded by Watford Borough Council, hosted each year since 2014 that offers something for everyone. Many of them are free, and the events are generally split between Cassiobury Park and The Parade in the town centre.

From June until the finale with the fireworks in November, the events will cover things from a bandstand in the park, a beach in the town centre, outdoor film screenings, and sports activities.

Race for Life Weekend

If you’re interested in getting active and contributing to a great cause this summer, there is ‘Race for Life weekend’ to look forward to in June. There are four races in total, covering the 8th and 9th June where participants can get involved in a ‘pretty muddy’ obstacle course, or standard 5 and 10k runs.

There is a 5k pretty muddy, as well as a kids’ race, on Saturday and then separate 5k and 10k races on Sunday.

Short Film Festival

If you’re interested in film, there is a great opportunity to witness a showcase of some of the best local, national, and international talent at the Watford Short Film Festival. The event is returning for the second year running and will cover an entire weekend on the 27th and 28th July 2019.

What Else Is On?

That’s not all, though. There are countless other events going on in and around Watford this summer – and locals also benefit from being so close to London, where the diversity and frequency of events is astounding.

In Watford specifically, there are still plenty of comedy shows, festivals – including one for wool (Festiwool), ‘An Audience with Harry Redknapp’, and many others for bringing the community together, and getting out and active.
