The British Glass Biennale is the flagship exhibition of the International Festival of Glass displayed in an atmospheric old factory glasshouse. It features work by 63 contemporary artists selected by jury, including British makers living and working abroad for the first time.

Since its inception in 2004 the Biennale has awarded £100,000 worth of prizes to artists, celebrating their creativity, innovation and technical skill. Come and vote for the People’s Prize winner; children can vote for the Young Collectors’ Award and win a piece of contemporary glass to start their own collection. Winners of the voting categories will be announced on 9 September.

Entry during the Festival requires a Festival Pass. Free entry afterwards.
