Vanessa Sharp of BID said: "It was a fantastic event - many people said how much they enjoyed it.

"In the late 1960s and into the 1970s there was a tradition of community carols being staged around the tree by the St Albans civic centre, in that spirit we introduced the Rockaholly event for this year."
