St Albans District loves a street party!

St Albans District was the street party capital of Hertfordshire in 2022 with nearly a third of the county’s 500+ street parties taking place here.  During the Queen’s Jubilee long weekend in June over 150 streets closed to traffic in order to celebrate together with a traditional street party. See our photo gallery below!

To organise your own street party you simply need to apply to Herts County Council at minimum 6 weeks before your party after having consulted your neighbours by letter.

If you live in the district of St Albans (which includes St Albans, Harpenden, Redbourn, Wheathampstead, London Colney and Sandridge) and want to organise a street party but don’t know where to start then get in touch with the local contact, Nicola Wyeth, using the contact form below or attend one of our online information sessions each February.

Our Street Party St Albans District also has Road Closed signs that we loan out on a first come first served basis for free. We are here to support you fill in the forms and give you ideas, so contact Nicola today!

For the fun stuff, don’t miss our blog about ideas of things to do at your street party. You can also check out the The Big Lunch and Great Get Together websites for further inspiration.
