Enjoy a wonderful spectacle as giant carnival puppets tell the story of Alban the remarkable man who gave the city its name. This year, the Alban Pilgrimage takes place on St Albans Day itself, Saturday 22 June. Roman chariots, lions and roses all take their place alongside Alban and Amphibalus in a dramatic procession from St Peter’s Church, through the historic streets to St Albans Cathedral.
After the procession arrives at the Cathedral, services take place throughout the rest of the afternoon. Alternatively, the St Alban’s Day celebrations continue with Alban Fest on the Abbey Orchard, part of the Cathedral’s Roman Festival.
