Sundown Cinema at The Cricketers, Weston, Tues 24 July

Moana screening in Weston with Sundown Cinema. I love this pub and the cricket ball wood fired pizza is just the ticket for watching a film in the garden on a big screen.

Portuguese supper club, The White Hart, Welwyn, Thurs 26 July

The White Hart in Welwyn village has great supper clubs. This photo is from one I went to earlier in the year (and I seem to remember snow on the ground although it really doesn’t seem that long ago). Delicious food, great wine from Wine2Trade, and evenings are also incredibly good value. Friendly atmosphere in the former village court room. £45.

Henry Moore Studios and Gardens, Perry Green

It’s the perfect weather to visit the heavenly Henry Moore Studios and Gardens. If you haven’t been, put it on your list for this summer. There’s a new visitor centre, cafe and shop and it’s just the most fantastic place. It’s one of my top places in Herts.
