Gloucester Stone Carving Festival

17 May, 2015 – 11:01 am

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.

If you wish to find more details please visit my dedicated website

I look forward to seeing you there.

    Sincere congratulations on arranging a superb Festival in Gloucester. Although we were only able to be with you on Saturday, it was clear that your organisation was impeccable. The welcome that you gave to us was heart-warming and the feeling of camaraderie amongst competitors and groupies alike was infectious.

    You also managed to arrange perfect weather!

    We hope that you have a a successful auction – all the pieces that we saw emerging from the raw blocks were outstanding.

    Our best wishes to you and all the team..
