Three times in the twentieth century St Albans caught ‘pageant fever’.
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 what they did with local and national history – and considers what they meant to the people of St Albans, then and now.
