The Life And Times Of St Albans’ Inns And Pubs

Local historians Ann Dean and Jonathan Mein will give two talks that consider the good times – and the bad – faced by the town’s many innkeepers and publicans in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Thursday 8th October 2015: The Life and Death of St Albans’ Inns – Ann Dean

This talk is a journey through the town. Illustrations of bygone inns, their life and economic importance. What caused their demise? And what happened next?

Thursday 15th October 2015: The Rise & Fall of the Public House in Victorian St Albans – Jonathan Mein

Historically St Albans has had dozens of public houses. For example, in 1870, there was one pub for about every 30 men. This talk will consider why there were so many of them in the Victorian town and then the causes for their decline.

Doors open at 7:15 for a 7:45 start at Verulamium Museum.

The discussions will continue after at The Six Bells, St Michaels (who will generously supply you with a beer, small wine or spirit and mixer for £2.50 on production of your ticket).

Please contact Verulamium Museum to purchase your tickets.
