The Gloucester Stone Carving festival

11 March, 2013 – 11:53 am

Well things are moving along very well.

Dates are The 25th, 26th and 27th May this year running alongside the Tall Ships festival it will be at The Llanthony Secunda Priory in Gloucester.

The prizes for the best carvings have been donated by Gibson tools, and the stone has been donated by Veizeys Quarry in Tetbury

There are a few side stalls The Gloucester geology Trust will be running activities, there will be someone from the Newport Ship Friends doing coin stamping, and The Greenman and The gatekeeper will have a stall.

I will be designing a carving based around a figurehead that will be in a raffle and as soon as I have drawn the design I will post images and the raffle tickets will go on sale.

The bulk of the profits will go to our chosen charities The Llanthony Secunda Priory Trust and the Gloucester Geology trust, and some will be kept back to start preparing for the next event.
