The Gloucester Stone Carving Festival returns to Llanthony Secunda Priory over the August bank holiday weekend.
This fantastic weekend will showcase the talents of skilled stonemasons as they create super works of art on the theme of ‘mythical creatures’. Watch in just two and a half days as their fantastical and magical beings come to life.
Llanthony Secunda’s grounds and buildings will be open to the public for the first time since building work started in January 2017. Visitors will be able to tour inside and see the newly-restored spaces for the first time. Over the weekend there will be stalls, demos, have-a-go activities, music, food and drink to entertain the whole family.
The festival ends on August bank holiday Monday with a live auction at 1.30 pm. Profits from the auction will support the Priory Trust to help us continue to look after our special collection of 15thC - 19thC listed buildings and structures.
