This year, City of Expertise member SA Law are joining fellow local businesses in taking part in St Albans’ first ever city-wide Advent Trail. St Albans BID are organising the trail in conjunction with Herts Advertiser and Enjoy St Albans. A variety of shops, restaurants and offices within the city will be unveiling their window from the 1st – 25th December.

On Saturday 1st December the Alban Arena unveiled the first display inspired by this year’s Panto. Throughout December, more exciting festive scenes will be revealed at 1 pm each day, before the final scene is a virtual reveal from St Albans Cathedral on Christmas Day.

The unveiling of SA Law’s advent window is taking place on 14th December at 1pm.

Julie Gingell, SA Law’s Partner and Director of Marketing & Business Development comments, “This is an exciting first for St Albans and we’re always very happy to take part in initiatives organised by BID that showcase our great city. We’re looking forward to seeing the shop windows transform and seeing our fellow St Albans’ businesses get in the festive spirit. SA Law will be continuing the festive spirit on the 14th December as we are also taking part in this years’ Save the Children Christmas jumper day!”

Members of the public are invited to witness each of the windows being revealed and vote for their favourite at Also, everyone who likes a post by Enjoy St Albans, Herts Advertiser or Radio Verulam on social media will automatically be put into a prize draw. A winner will be picked randomly the following day and announced. You can follow the trail by using #stalbansadvent.
