We’re going to be honest and admit that Hatfield’s entertainment scene isn’t exactly setting the world alight. The Forum is an exceptional state-of-the-art venue on the University of Hertfordshire campus and takes centre stage in our list of entertainment options. After that, things drop off a little. Nevertheless, take a look and see what takes your fancy for your stay in Hatfield.
Entertainment in Hatfield
The Forum is Hatfield’s No. 1 entertainment venue. If you want to see some live music during your stay in town, then be sure to check what’s on during your stay. It’s an uber-modern venue that was completely built from scratch as a part of the University of Hertfordshire. The 2,250-capacity venue benefits from the combination of its state-of-the-art facilities and the fact that it’s a little over half an hour from London; it books some of the biggest names in entertainment and hosts lively club nights and student nights as well.
Rockers won’t want to miss out on the chance to visit The Rock Den, Hatfield’s most popular gig venue for rock music. It’s a fantastic venue that has a wonderful habit of unearthing rising stars and booking them before they make the big time. It might have something to do with the fact that the sound is always perfect. That’s what you get when music lovers run a live music venue. Tickets are cheap, and the atmosphere is lively, so see what’s happening while you’re here in Hatfield.

Hatfield Town F.C.
While sports fans can’t enjoy any professional sports options in Hatfield, football enthusiasts can make their way to the Birchwood Leisure Centre to see Hatfield Town F.C., the local amateur football club. The Blue Boys, as they’re also known, were established way back in 1886, and while they’ve never played in the Football League, it’s an enthusiastic club and can be a fun way to kill a couple of hours on the weekend, especially if the weather is kind.
If the weather is unkind, you may want to hunt down the local ODEON Hatfield cinema in The Galleria, Hatfield’s main shopping centre. It’s a nine-screen cinema that shows all the latest blockbusters, as well as live theatre screenings. It has your standard cinema food options if you’re peckish for popcorn and slightly overpriced hot dogs. However, the location in The Galleria means there are heaps of other fast-food options at hand as well, including Nando’s, Pizza Express and McDonald’s.
