Hemel Hempstead bandstand fun features everything from clowns to robotic dogs


Circus skills and steel drums will be among the plethora of summer entertainment on show at Hemel Hempstead’s town centre bandstand throughout August.

The Marlowes location will play host to a different activity every weekend, starting with Matto the clown and his vibrant exotic birds from 11am to 3pm this Saturday.

On Saturday, August 10, international award-winning balloon artist Twistina and Twistopher will create all manner of animals, cartoon characters and wearable art for children out shopping with their parents.

The following Saturdays will feature robotic sheepdog Sheridan and musicians the Phoenix Dixieland Jazz Band, before steel drum soloist Rachel Hayward provides the backdrop to a fun day of arts and crafts on the last day of the month.

The free events are run by Dacorum Borough Council.
