8 Jun 2010 — Magna Carter weekend
This weekend sees a celebration of the rights and freedoms enshrined in the Magna Carter. The events are organised by St Albans City & District Council, as part of the St Albans Festival. The festival itself runs from 11 June until 27 June, with the Magna Carter theme forming the opening weekend, to coincide with the date of its seal on 15 June 1215. The festival as a whole includes a varied range of indoor and outdoor events at a number of venues in and around St Albans.
Although the festival falls outside the area covered by North Watford History Group, it does include events of general historical interest, and remains fairly local. St Albans can be reached from North Watford by bus (321 or 724) or train (using the Abbey Flier service).
