The streets of St Albans were transported back in time to the 20th century this weekend.
Thousands of people enjoyed activities, vintage cocktails, live music, and historic vehicles lining the streets for the St Albans TimeTurn Festival.
Different roads were themed - Holywell Hill was World War One and the 1920s, St Peter’s Street became World War Two and the 1940s, George Street was 1950s and 1960s, and Catherine Street, which was closed to traffic, was the 1970s and 1980s.
Hundreds of children took part in a history trail around the city centre, and one lucky entrant will win a £50 St Albans Gift Card.
The event was organised by St Albans BID as part of the Heritage Open Days. BID manager Helen Burridge said: “The city has never seen anything like this before. Encouraging the public away from the main streets and into other areas was great fun, drawing attention to the personality and passion of all of our businesses.”
