About St Albans
St Albans is a city located in the county of Hertfordshire which is roughly 20 miles to the north of London. It was the first major town on the old Roman road of Watling Street for travellers heading north from London. The city has a thriving cultural life with many concerts and theatre productions held in venues across the city. These include Trestle Arts Base, St. Albans Abbey, Maltings Arts Theatre, the Alban Arena, the Abbey Theatre, St Peter's Church and St Saviour's Church.
St Albans is also home to Trestle Theatre Company who have been creating professional, innovative and inspirational productions since 1981. Originally known for their work with masks, Trestle collaborates with UK and international artists to unify movement, music and text into a compelling theatrical experience. The Sandpit Theatre is a theatre attached to Sandringham School which hosts a wide variety of plays throughout the year, mainly performances put on by the pupils of Sandringham School.
The city's two main line railway stations, St Albans City and St Albans Abbey, provide passengers with excellent and fast links into London and to destinations throughout the south east of England and beyond.
Located in the foothills of the Pennines, the West Yorkshire city of Bradford has a culturally diverse population with many immigrants from County Mayo and Sligo in Ireland and Jewish wool merchants from Germany who came to the city in the 19th century. More recently many immigrants from south Asia, particularly from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, came during the 1950's and 1960's.
Bradford's textile industry has been in decline since the 1950's and many of its mills have been redeveloped. The grandest of the mills no longer used for textile production is Lister's Mill, the chimney of which can be seen from most places in Bradford. It has become a beacon of regeneration after a £100 million conversion to apartment blocks.
Bradford City Park, now home to the Bradford Festival which includes the Mela, is a six-acre public space in the heart of Bradford which contains the largest man-made water feature in any UK city - a 4,000sq m mirror pool featuring more than 100 fountains, including the tallest in any UK city at 30 meters. When the mirror pool is drained City Park is capable of holding events such as carnivals, markets, theatre productions, screenings and community festivals.
