Alban Fest

Taking place on St Albans Day, and a part of St Albans Roman Festival, Alban Fest welcomes all to an afternoon full of free Roman-themed entertainment.

Experience the drama of a Roman battle with live demonstrations by Ermine Street Guard, including artillery shootings, military training and a static Roman camp! Witness the incredible skill of medieval pilgrimage badge making by Lionheart Replicas and create exciting clay sculptures of St Albans Cathedral with DCPG alongside a real Roman Potter.

Our fantastic Carnival puppets will also make an appearance throughout the afternoon for you to take photos with, so look out for 12ft tall Romans, Lions and Alban and friends wandering around! If that wasn’t enough, there will also be Festival glitter and face painting, music by the Maida Vales as well as arts, games and delicious food and drink.

We can’t wait to welcome you!
