Hello everyone, I have been organising the festival now for the last 6mths and in less than a week we’ll be setting it all up, I have pop-up shops and activities including my ever popular have a goes. I am joined this time by one of the Gloucester Cathedral Stonemasons, Neil. There is a donations bin and all money raised will go into the festival pot for future events.
There are 24 stonemasons carving at this years event and the theme is wild animals-which is why I carved is an elephant for the raffle prize, tickets are just £2.
As you may be aware from 2013 the calibre of carvings was very high and so I look forward to the auction this year which will take place on Sunday 24th May at 3pm. We have a professional auctioneer who has kindly offered his time and skill to help us raise as much money as possible for The Llanthony Secunda Priory Trust. Bidding will start at £50 and I can accept cash and credit card payments.

I look forward to seeing you there.
