November Festivities

The festive season is just around the corner, and we have a range of ideas to help get you in the Christmas spirit. But first, fireworks!


Hatfield Community Fireworks makes a welcome return this November 4th. Taking place at Angerland Park, you will find fairground rides, circus entertainers, and of course a fantastic firework display. With various stalls and a range of affordable street food on offer, it should be a great night. Gates open at 4.30pm and you can book tickets and discover more HERE

The annual St Albans Fireworks Spectacular also takes place on Saturday, November 4th in Verulamium Park. In aid of local charities, the St Albans display is always spectacular and starts from around 6pm. Only a short drive from us at The Comet, a visit to St Albans is always recommended.

Knebworth House

Now let’s turn to the festive season. Knebworth House is a stunning stately house with parkland, and is famous for hosting some epic outdoor gigs that have become the stuff of legend, such as Led Zeppelin and Oasis, as well as appearing in numerous movies and TV shows. Well worth a visit under any circumstances, we say. This November 24th to 26th sees the return of the Knebworth Christmas Fair. The much-loved festive shopping event is back, packed with Christmas presents and gift ideas for all ages, along with delicious festive food & drink. Shop for handmade Christmas decorations, unique gift ideas and lots of tasty yuletide food and drink. More than just shopping, it’s an ideal day out in a stunning setting.

A Christmas experience like no other, as you enter the realm of Tudor festivities with Queen Elizabeth I hosting the fantastical revels, a journey through time and tradition, where yuletide merriment meets regal majesty. Wander through the West Garden, past the Knot Garden, and into the Victorian Kitchen, encountering imposing Tudor creations, from a majestic carriage to merry mummers captured in the moment as they perform their festive plays. Gaze upon the Christmas Kissing Bough, immerse yourself in the melodies of the era, and more.
