As we transition towards the end of summer, there’s still lots going on in the area, and hopefully still many days of great weather to enjoy in September. Here’s our suggestions for events you may want to explore close by to us at The Comet Hotel London Hatfield.
For our first recommended visit, we are back at Hatfield House. If you’ve never been, this majestic historic house and gardens is must see on any stay at The Comet. If you’ve been before, be sure to go again! With a full calendar of events, there’s always something new to enjoy.
The September calendar starts with Tudor Legacies on the 4th. Visitors will have the exciting opportunity to interact and engage with Henry VIII, his six wives and his children & many other historical characters. A fun and educational immersive event in a breathtaking location.
September 11th brings The Enfield and District Veteran Vehicle Society. Started by a group of enthusiasts back in 1961, this will be a day out for anyone interested in historic vehicles of all kinds. The vehicles will be displayed on the North Front of Hatfield House.
Combining an educational evening of garden talk with the popping of corks. What could be more genteel? Blooming Bubbles on September 15th does just that! Join the Head Gardener Andrew Turvey for an enlightening evening tour of the Historic Gardens.
CJ’s Birds of Prey Experiences makes a return visit to Hatfield House on September 18th. The display will include a variety of birds including the second strongest Eagle, the Crowned Hawk Eagle, the stunning Snowy Owl and more. A wonderful opportunity to witness these fantastic birds close up.
September 24th sees a rather unusual concept: Firework Champions This event pretty much does what it says on the tin. Three of the UK’s best firework companies compete against each other with a 10 minute firework display choreographed to music, followed by a larger huge finale display. A good chance to practice your “oohs” and “aahs” ahead of Bonfire Night!
Rounding out the month on September 29th, this should be a much calmer event. Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival: A World of Music Artistic Director Guy Johnston announces the 11th annual Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival, A World of Music, drawing together musicians from around the globe to the historic rooms of Hatfield House. Experience world class musicians performing a wonderful selection of Classical pieces in some exquisite settings. This should be stunning.

We’ve talked about Panshanger Park before. Partly being mined for minerals, other ares of the site are given over to a nature reserve and a country park, which is surely a fairly unique situation. This month visitors have the opportunity to discover more about what makes this place so special, with two events.
Geology of Panshanger Park takes place on September 10th. Join for a walk around Panshanger Park and delve into its Geological past and present. Discover what makes the site so special for mining. Then on September 17th you can Ramble around Panshanger Park. Join volunteer John for a scenic 5-mile loop walk around Panshanger Park. Take in the park’s key sites whilst enjoying an invigorating walk. Find out more about the wide variety of history, landscape and wildlife that make up this 1000-acre country park and nature reserve.

Brocket Hall Golf Club
Finally, how about a sporting event? If golf is your thing, then this one is a must. September 23-25th sees the Rose Ladies Open Tournament take over Brocket Hall Golf Club. A field of 108 players will be teeing it up on the par-72 Melbourne Course, which opened in June 1992 and is the handiwork of former Ryder Cup golfers Peter Alliss and Clive Clark. This 54-hole stroke play women’s tournament is on the LETAS Tour, and boasts a serious prize fund of €65,000. Experience some top golf on our doorstep! Discover more HERE.
