Councillor Tony Kingsbury, Leader of the Council, said:

I'm delighted that we're able to bring yet another fantastic event to Hatfield town centre as part of the council's successful #LoveWelHat campaign. It might even give mums and dads the chance to show the youngsters that they can play video games too!

#LoveWelHat events have taken place in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield on weekends throughout the summer as part of an England European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 'welcome back' initiative to encourage people into town centres.
