This year, the event will be held at the Church of St Mary de Crypt and the Old Crypt Schoolrooms, Southgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 1PT. The venue has been undergoing major renovation with the assistance of the Heritage Lottery Fund and our event will be the first function to be held there, following the completion of the project.
