My stone carving festival is free to enter but there are some costs involved if you want to try out any of the activities.
My have a go at stone carving table asks for donations-all the money raised goes towards the costs of running the festival.
The Gloucester Geology Trust and the Newport Ship trust have a minimum donation or small fee for their activities and as charities they keep all the money raised for their causes.
Once again I am raffling one of my carvings to help towards the costs of the festival, tickets are £3 each.
Obviously there will be a bar and crepes so make sure you bring money for that too, or bring a picnic, deck chairs, your own drinks and just enjoy the atmosphere.
Smoking is only allowed in one area on site (behind the Tithe barn) there will be signs to show you where and there are proper bins for cigarette butts.
Dogs are allowed on site but must be kept on a lead, please clean up after you pet, there are bins for poop on the tow path.
The site is open to the public from 10 am – 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday and 10 am -3 pm on Monday.
The carving will stop at 12 pm in order to prepare for the auction at 1.30 pm
