As the 50th anniversary of The Alban Arena fast approaches there has naturally been a lot of reminiscing over some of the great events that have occurred here over the years. The many musicians, comedians, artists and truly great talent that have graced our stage during the last half-century have led to some fantastic and memorable moments, not to mention some ever-lasting friendships; perhaps none so close as our very own local legend, Bob Golding.
Going forward, we wanted to cement our values as a community-driven entertainment venue and with this in mind, who better to partner with than our much-loved pantomime regular. So it is our honour and privilege to announce that Bob Golding has agreed to become the patron of The Alban Arena.
Speaking about his new honorary title, Bob said “I’m deeply honoured to have been asked to become Patron of the Alban Arena, I’ve known there was a family atmosphere from many years of working here, and now I feel like the adopted son. Really chuffed. We’re so lucky having a building in St Albans that is full of people who really do care about providing a heart for the arts and general city community”
