The Kashu restaurant – new business in the former Liberal Club building

I had passed this recently renovated restaurant several times before I experienced it. To be honest, it looked a bit sterile outside and I assumed it would feel a bit like a class room inside!

Welcome back to Starbucks and a brand new New Look!

In August this year, we experienced the closure of Borders Bookstore in Colney Fields Retail Park. Along with that, the popular Starbucks Café closed too. This weekend, the fashion store, New Look has opened in its place.

Earthworks works!

One day I curiously drove into Hixberry Lane (St Albans) to see where it led to! A few buildings, polytunnels and vegetable rows later, I realised that I was at an establishment called Earthworks!

Taste the essence of life in historic surrounds.

Last year, the coffee and tea addicts of St Albans heard that the lower floor of the Town Hall would be converted into a café with outdoor seating. I was really pleased about this as it seemed the perfect location to sit and people-watch in one of the great historic cities of England.

Wilco Johnson Band and Glenn Tilbrook at the Alban Arena March...

The Alban Arena is a venue with a rich history of welcoming touring acts, some of which have gone on to world-wide fame - such as Dire Straits, who played there in 1978. I saw the legendary Rory Gallagher there in 1988, more recently The Waterboys and The Gorillaz have graced the stage. It is maybe a sign of the times that more tribute bands than original artists perform there these days. So when two of the UKs most respected musical artists were coming to the Alban Arena it was likely to be an evening not to be missed!
