St Albans caught ‘pageant fever’ three times in the twentieth century. In 1907, 1948 and again in 1953, the people of the city came together to perform episodes from its rich history.
This exhibition tells the story of the St Albans pageants with objects, voices, pictures and film. It shows how the pageants were organised, and how they shared local and national history – and considers what they meant to the people of St Albans, then and now.
St Albans Museum + Gallery is open 10-5 Monday to Saturday and 11-5 on Sundays.
This exhibition is supported by the Arts & Humanities Research Council.
