We’re thrilled that our Costume for Gloucester will be exhibited at Gloucester Cathedral this September, alongside garments submitted by the local community, each with their very own story to tell.
A Costume for Gloucester is an ambitious community project that brought together over 100 stitchers to showcase Gloucester’s unique heritage, history and culture. Each contribution will depict a scene, location, event or person connected to the city, and our brilliant project leads, costumier Katie Taylor and community artist Jo Teague, will use them to create the finished outfit.
Alongside this unique costume, the exhibition includes items of clothing from all over the city that have their own stories to tell; clothes that touch us, protect us, and represent aspects of who we are.
The exhibition is available to view in the Lady Chapel from Saturday 16th – Sunday 15th October. Opening hours are Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturday 10am – 4:30pm and Sunday 12:00 – 2:30pm.
