Welcome to the sixth International Festival of Glass
The International Festival of Glass is the UK's only festival celebrating the spectacle and diversity of glassmaking. We are pleased to announce new dates for the next Festival and launch of the British Glass Biennale. These will now take place between 25th and 31st May 2015 (rather than August 2014).
The postponement is due to further development at Ruskin Mill Trust’s Glasshouse College, one of the main host sites of the Festival and home to the British Glass Biennale. This will take place during 2014 in partnership with ERDF and Heritage Lottery.
The Festival hosts or is partner to over 80 exhibitions, events, workshops and lectures, culminating in its renowned Public Festival. In 2010 we welcomed over 13,000 people to the Stourbridge Glass Quarter and 2012, a year that marked the 400 anniversary of glassmaking in Stourbridge and 50 years of studio glassmaking worldwide, saw approximately 20,000 visits to individual sites.
We are busy making plans for an even more exciting and interesting festival and will be releasing details in plenty of time for you to book up your diaries.To be kept up to date as the 2015 programme develops, please join the Mailing List.
