Cirencester's Advent Festival

This is one of the highlights in the town's calendar.  The Christmas market opens, there is an afternoon of live music from local bands, wonderful carol singing with the Salvation Army, a blessing from Father Leonard and a "ho ho ho" from Father Christmas followed by the countdown to the lights being switched on.

Bingham Library Trust - Volunteer Stewards

The 2016 exhibition at the Bingham Gallery will be - Drawing on Cirencester, historic scenes of Cirencester over 250 years. This exhibition of drawings of Cirencester explores how Cirencester has been depicted using the most direct and simplest of artist techniques, drawing.

The earliest drawing dates from nearly 230 years ago and is by Joseph Farringdon who was a topographical artist known for his series of British views and monuments who visited the town in 1790 and drew the Parish Church. The Gallery is especially thrilled to be borrowing from Corinium Museum a series of bold expressive drawings created in 1814 by the well-known artist Jean Claude Nattes best-known for his various views of Great Britain. 

The success of these openings remains dependent on the continued support of volunteer stewards. If you are able to help or would like some more information please  email
