2021 International Festival of Glass & British Glass Biennale POSTPONED to 2022


Press release

It is with regret that we have decided to postpone the 2021 International Festival of Glass and British Glass Biennale with the intention of rescheduling in August 2022.

With the call to artists for the Biennale due to be launched in the next few weeks we have had to make the difficult decision now, even though the festival is 11 months away. Our priority is to keep our artists and audience safe and the fact that the pandemic is still a significant global health concern creates uncertainty around international travel and exchange. We are also mindful that Glasshouse College, which hosts the festival, works with some of the UKs most vulnerable young people.

The Festival will now take place 26-29 August 2022. The theme will remain East Asian glass featuring the superb artists from Japan, South Korea, China and Taiwan that have already agreed to join us.

We sincerely apologise for the disappointment this postponement will cause and look forward to meeting you again in Stourbridge in 2022.

With very best wishes
