There will be a tent set aside for performers from Berkhamsted’s Swan Youth Centre, plus Haresfoot beer, Eastwoods barbecue, Dar Papillon treats, and Scoops ice cream.

The festival was first staged in 2012, attracting 3,500 people. But costs stretched to £80,000 and it had to be called off last year due to financial pressures

This year, the Berkhamsted Cricket Club event will last from noon to 6pm on Saturday, September 13.

Tickets cost £14 for adults – or £18 on the day, £8 for under-18s, and under-14s get in free.
