This Friday 24 July, St Albans Cathedral will open its doors for a very special after-hours event. Part of the Association of English Cathedrals’ Cathedrals at Night, the cathedral will re-open between 7pm and 9pm to allow visitors to explore their local cathedral in a way they may not have done so before.
Lose yourself in the beauty of St Albans Cathedral at Night as it moves from daylight to dusk during this reflective evening. See the stunning architecture illuminated and watch the inside of the longest Nave in Britain come to life as 700-year-old wall paintings are restored to their former glory through unique projections. You can also meet and hear from characters from the medieval Abbey’s past and explore what the modern Cathedral has to offer with its Pilgrimage Puppet Exhibition and A Last Supper installation. Alternatively, it is an opportunity to reflect and take the time ‘just be’ in the Cathedral’s extraordinary spaces of peace and tranquillity.
The Cathedral Shop and Abbot’s Kitchen café will also be open on the night.
