Cornering the Market: A history of St Albans Market
Now on at the Museum of St Albans until 12th January 2014.
An exhibition telling the story of the history of the market in St Albans.
Christmas Customs and Traditions
This year St Albans hosts a traditional German Market and at the same time the Museum of St Albans explores the history of our traditional street market.
When you decorate the Christmas tree, hang up mistletoe or eat mince pies, do you wonder the origins of these customs which have become so familiar?
Come to a fascinating talk to find out about the stories behind these and many other customs which make this time of year such a special occasion.
After the talk, we are serving mince pies and hot drinks and will be happy to walk you down to the Christmas Market.
Saturday 14th December at the Museum of St Albans.
10.30 am to 12 Midday.
Tickets £5.00 available in advance from the Museum of St Albans and on the door. Tel: 01727 819340.
