Come and celebrate this year’s International Festival of Glass at the iconic Red House Glass Cone in Stourbridge’s glass quarter, 23 to 26 August. This festival, the theme is ‘Placemaking’.
Our historic site was constructed at the end of the 18th Century and is the best maintained cone in the country.
You’ll be able to view interesting exhibitions, participate in glass related activities and listen to educative talks in this historic building, which created glass tableware for the ill-fated Titanic.
One of our highlights is the attendance of the fine art auctioneers & valuers, Bonhams. They will be with us on Sunday 25 August (see below for details).
Over the four day period there’s a lot more happening, so why not have fun with us and celebrate our glorious glass heritage at the International Festival of Glass 2019.
To book simply ring 01384 812750. Please note numbers are limited, so please book as soon as possible.
You’ll also find that our independent studios will be open, providing you with the opportunity to view artists at work, as well as the chance to buy unique items.
This festival is run in conjunction with local glass quarter partners, so why not visit them during this four day extravaganza?
We have a courtesy shuttle bus running every 20 minutes from Stourbridge Bus Station (stand J) run by Newbury Travel. This will run between Stourbridge town centre, Ruskin Glass Centre, The Lace Guild and The Red House Glass Cone.
