There is some (not a lot) information on the website and also about up coming events at Broadfield House.

There has been no identification program for a good few years now.  It's incredibly frustrating given it is such a magnificent resource.

:) at Adam's post - actually that's quite intriguing.

Keith I think it's a huge missed opportunity to promote and market such a fabulous place.

and uggh, I've just been on the International Festival of Glass site and checked out the links on their venues page - they are all working EXCEPT the link to Broadfield House and the Red House Glass Cone.
I've sent them an email to let them know.

This years International Festival of Glass will the last one held while Broadfield House is open; as everything is still on track to close the Museum at the end of the year and with no official news from DMBC regarding The new site or anything else for that matter! I suggest if you are going to visit do it soon before it's too late.
