Vale Press is proud to be a sponsor of the 2017 Cirencester Abbey 900 festival. Vale Press handles the printing of literature and promotional material at a specially discounted charity rate and is delighted to be associated with a programme of events that will cater for all ages of our communities.
2017 is the 900th anniversary of the founding of the Augustinian Abbey in 1117 by King Henry 1st, which marked the beginning of the cultural and economic success of Cirencester and the wider Cotswolds, which continues to this day.
A group of likeminded people from all walks of the community including businesses, the voluntary sector, the arts community, the church and local people have got together to create a year long festival of over 50 events to celebrate the town’s history and to express their enthusiasm and confidence for the future of Cirencester and the Cotswolds.
The flagship fundraising event of the festival is the building of a Lego model of the Abbey using 70,000 sponsored bricks.
An incredibly varied programme of events will shortly be published, with more to be added during the year. Look out locally for copies soon – printed, of course, by Vale Press!
