Stonemasonry Festival 2016

Activities may take place outside of these times.

8th Jul 2016 10am - 10th Jul 2016 4pm Event Type: Festival

Around 20 cathedral stonemasons from around the UK will join us for the first of what we hope will be a regular event in the Cathedral’s calendar. On Friday 8, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 July the masons will be taking part in a carving competition, working publicly in the Cathedral Inner Close.

Visitors to the event will be able to watch them at work, find out about stonemasonry and have a go at carving for themselves.

On Sunday 10 July at 2.45pm the carvings created at the show will be auctioned. Please do join us, bid generously and if you're lucky you might just get to take a unique carving.

Free admission. All welcome!
