Organisers behind a baby and toddler festival are “incredibly excited” to see it return to Hitchin in May.

TOTFest, organised by pre-school events company Pink Bear Events, will take place in the ground of the historic Hitchin Priory on Sunday, May 26, and is aimed specifically at children aged six months to five years.

It will be the second TOTFest held in Hitchin after last year’s festival at the same site.

Pink Bear Events co-owner Kerrie Goude said: “We are so incredibly excited to be bringing TOTFest to Hitchin again this year.

“We’ve been working tirelessly since last summer to make sure we come back in 2019 with an event that is even bigger and better than before.

“We are also delighted to be working with a national ticketing company this year, enabling us to implement a brand new and much quicker entrance procedure to help us maximise our guest’s enjoyment on the day.”
