On 6 July 2022, St Albans International Organ Festival and the Hertfordshire Lieutenancy presented a very special concert at St Albans Cathedral to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We offer thanks again to the hundreds of people who performed, including the many representatives of St Albans choirs and children from two local primary schools.

This webpage is intended to ensure that this spectacular event will be remembered in all its glory.
