The British Glass Foundation (BGF) is delighted to announce that following a period of consolidation, and despite the restraints imposed by the Covid pandemic, major and substantive progress has been made in its ambitions to create a world class glass museum in the heart of the Stourbridge Glass quarter. A complete re-branding has taken place and the new museum will now be called Stourbridge Glass Museum which will open to the public on 9 April 2022.
Graham Knowles, Chairman of The British Glass Foundation said:
‘This is fantastic news. After more than 10 years of effort, which would not have been possible without the unflinching support of our sponsors, backers and partners especially Dudley MBC, European Regional Development Fund, National Lottery Heritage Fund and Complex Development Projects Ltd., we are almost there. It is also thanks to you, the public, that we are now touchingly close to achieving our ultimate ambition of finally opening the ‘People’s Museum’ that provides a new home for the internationally renowned Stourbridge glass collection.’
