St Albans’ Meraki Festival is set to be even bigger and even better for its second year.
There are about five weeks to go before Meraki comes to Redbourn Showground with a host of activities for children and adults - including a silent disco, caving, and roller disco.
Festival go-ers last year were treated to an array of tasty street food at the event, with a host of local traders offering a variety of refreshments.
This year chefs are travelling from all over the country to delight the patrons of St Albans’ very own music festival, joining home-grown businesses in the field.
There will be an iconic double decker Big Red Bus Bar, luxurious Gourmet Cheese Toasties, high quality American food at The Street Diner, and Woodburn Pizza Street Food all the way from Scotland.
