A flashback to the 1970s is on offer in the Museum of St Albans from this Saturday (6) in an exhibition featuring objects, photographs and memories of the time.

They will include space hoppers, the launch of blockbuster movie Star Wars and memories of the heatwave of 1976, all of which played a part in the story of Seventies St Albans.

The free exhibition at the museum in Hatfield Road runs until Sunday, September 28.

St Albans council’s portfolio holder for sports. leisure and heritage, Cllr Annie Brewster, said: “Take a trip down memory lane and pop along to Seventies St Albans. If you were not born until much later, you can discover the decade for the first time and marvel at the clothing and artefacts from the period.”

For further information about the exhibition call the museum on 01727 819340.
