St Albans took a whirlwind tour through the ages to celebrate the district’s heritage in a city centre festival.
There were classic cars, scooters, and motorbikes lining the streets, live music, swing dance demonstrations, flashmobs, and a history trail at the second annual St Albans Time Turn Festival.
It was organised by St Albans BID (Business Improvement District) on September 22 as part of the Heritage Open Days.
Events and communications manager at St Albans BID, Sarah Fenton, said: "We were so pleased to welcome so many happy faces to St Albans on Sunday, despite the slight dampness of the day.
"We've heard from families and friends who discovered unknown facts about the city, individuals who are now starting jive dance lessons next month and laughs aplenty enjoyed with our golfers and tank operators."
