The International Festival of Glass takes place at venues across the Stourbridge Glass Quarter throughout August and September 2012. It encompasses exhibitions, masterclasses from 20-23 August and a four day Glass Festival from Friday 24 August to Monday 27 August.
Entry to most Glass Festival venues is free (though some activities may incur a small charge). A festival pass is required for entry to Ruskin Glass Centre during the four day Glass Festival. A festival pass allows entry to most lectures and talks, all demonstrations, the British Glass Biennale and other exhibitions on site.
Four Day Festival Pass £14.50
Adult Day Festival Pass £5
Child Day Festival Pass £1
Ticket prices for individual events/activities, and how to book are specified against the listing for each event.
The opening times of venues during the Glass Festival (24-27 August) is generally 10 – 5, although some activities may finish a little earlier. The Red House Glass Cone and Broadfield House Glass Museum will close at 4pm on Friday 24 August (to allow time to set up for an evening event). Outside the Glass Festival dates, please check with the venue concerned.
There is free but limited car parking at most venues. A free shuttle bus service will operate between all Glass Festival venues from 9.30am with the last bus leaving each venue at around 5pm.
