This gathering has become in recent years a spectacular event in the City of St Albans, to commemorate St Alban himself. The gathering takes place at St Peter’s Church at the “top” of the High Street and processes down to the Cathedral with bands playing. Giant puppets portraying Alban and other contemporary characters are carried in the parade. “Contemporary” in this instance meaning the second century AD, when Alban became the first recorded Christian Martyr in Britain, at Verulamium. His shrine is in the Cathedral.
We do not have an organised group from our parish for this event (but someone could make one happen).
