Crucible – Gloucester Cathedral

This is an amazing free exhibition of site specific sculpture by some of the biggest names in the business, in and around Gloucester Cathedral. They include the likes of Eduardo Paolozzi, David Nash, Henry More and younger artists like Gavin Turk, Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, Angust Fairhurst and my favourite, Peter Randall-Page, whose work is found at the Eden Project and in Bristol’s Castle Park. This is Mother Tongue.

  1. Looks amazing. Salisbury Cathedral used to have a sculpture festival (don’t know if it still happens) and I loved it. The cathedral environment and sculptures go together like eggs and bacon.


    • It is. Though I did struggle with a few of the pieces inside – the historian in me was a bit uncomfortable with some of the art put on old tombs etc. But that’s my problem, and they won’t be there much longer.
