Cathedral Quarter Gloucester is excited to announce the return of the much-anticipated Interactive Archaeology event between the 30th of July to the 1st of August 2021! The event will feature artwork making it look as though the street has been dug away and is revealing some archaeological features, based on what we know was actually there and re-build the features being uncovered- to show how it would have looked when standing, (along with the odd hidden comical or beautiful discovery). There will be eight pieces of artwork set out along Westgate Street and Eastgate Street, and an accompanying exhibition and consultation event will be running in the former jewellery shop at 21 Westgate St. The artworks will be on display from 11.00am – 4.30pm on Friday 30th, Saturday 31st and from 11.00am until 4.00pm on Sunday 1st August.Visit our website to find out more: www.cathedralquartergloucester.uk/events-activities/ ...

Kaleidoscope Tarot
Treated myself to these lovelies when I popped in to see my pals Libby and Toni at their shop Idun Spirit yesterday. It was so good to see their door open again after all these months. I couldn't leave my lovey out so chose a bath bomb especially for him. Can't wait to be back with them in June to give readings again. An extra bonus was this fab bag for shoppers spending in shops in the Cathedral Quarter.💗#kaleidoscopetarot #kaleidoscopewellbeingandtarot #karenwiederholdtarot #tarot #wellbeing #gloucester#gloucestershire #idunspirit #cathedralquartergloucester Cathedral Quarter Gloucester ...
