The Herts Big Weekend is Visit Herts' annual campaign offering Hertfordshire residents the chance to win thousands of FREE Tickets and days out to attractions across the county. This year it will be taking place on the 4th and 5th April.

The Big Weekend is all about giving residents in Hertfordshire the chance to discover – or rediscover – the array of fantastic things to see and do on their doorstep, and encouraging them to spread the word about their county. This word of mouth recommendation is priceless and participants tell us that as a result of taking part in the Big Weekend they are highly likely to return with friends or relatives in the future and to explore more attractions in the area. Businesses also report an increase in secondary spend. If you would like to get involved please submit your tickets by clicking here

Last year's event broke all previous records with 61 attractions donating more than 1,200 pairs of tickets, and there were over 59,000 applications for tickets. During the campaign, the website received more than 240,000 page views and our press coverage reached over 213,000 people, providing all participating businesses with fantastic free exposure. Research shows that following the event 87% of participant would visit more places in Hertfordshire as a result of Big Weekend while 99% would be proud to show their friends and family around the county. The Big Weekend plays an important role in helping to raise the profile of tourism as an important sector in the local economy and gain the support of the local community.

The deadline to submit your tickets will be 24th January.
