Cathedral Quarter Celebrations

Students from Gloucestershire College have been bringing Gloucester’s rich heritage to life, and creating work for a weekend of culture at the Cathedral Quarter this October.

We’re excited to announce that our Arts and Media students have been working with Gloucester City Council to take part in the upcoming Cathedral Quarter cultural celebrations.

Students from art & design, music, photography and media have been bringing Gloucester’s rich heritage to life and creating work which will be displayed during a weekend of culture for the Cathedral Quarter, over 20th and 21st October 2023. There will be arts-based and cultural events taking place within the High Street Heritage Action Zone.

We Are Gathered Here – Installation at St Nicholas Church 

You can visit St Nicholas Church to view an unusual and atmospheric art installation, where our Art students have been working hard to bring past residents of Gloucester to life. The ‘We Are Gathered Here’ artwork will depict a congregation in silhouette and pays homage to the people who have contributed to Westgate Street’s heritage over time.

The people represented were selected based upon archival research. They once lived, worked, visited or supported Westgate Street at various times in the past. The installation demonstrates the long history of Westgate Street and its importance as a place of trade throughout the ages. It is a celebration of the people who have shaped, influenced and worked to make it such a special place.

The exhibition is a partnership between Gloucestershire Family History Society, Gloucester Civic Trust, Gloucestershire College and the Churches Conservation Trust. It is supported by Voices Gloucester and Nicks Timber.

Also opening on the 20th October is an exhibition of photographs taken by photography students from Gloucestershire College. The photographs depict the more interesting architectural details of the historic buildings on the street, and will be on display in the Cathedral Quarter HQ at no. 21 Westgate Street for 2 weeks.

All events are part of the Cathedral Quarter heritage led regeneration project funded by Historic England and supported by Gloucester City Council and the Cathedral Quarter partnership.
