Friday 25th marked the official opening of the international Ferrous Festival of Artist Blacksmithing with a ceremonial ribbon cutting by the Right Worshipful, The Mayor of Hereford, Cllr Paul Stevens, accompanied by Cllr Sebastian Bowen, Chairman of Herefordshire Council. 


Ferrous 22 brings an abundance of exhibitions, talks and events to Hereford over 10 days, hosted in both established and pop-up spaces around the city centre. From international exhibitions, such as Sharing is Caring II, to live forging demonstrations, there is something for visitors of all ages. 

Now in its 3rd year, with previous festivals held in 2017 and 2019, Ferrous celebrates the craft of blacksmithing and Herefordshire’s own reputation for blacksmithing excellence. This popular festival welcomes visitors from near and far, through its offering of events and activities that allow everyone to discover the world of forged metal. 

“It gives me enormous pleasure and pride to declare the 3rd Ferrous Festival open. It is wonderful to see a world class event returning to Hereford and I encourage everyone to try to see it.” - Mayor of Hereford, Cllr Paul Stevens.

The Ferrous team invite you to explore the various exhibitions, demonstrations, talks and workshops that are available both over the main weekend and throughout the full 10 days of the festival, including a free walking trail on the LoyalFree app, designed to connect visitors with nature, as they uncover the various permanent metalwork sculptures on display around Hereford. 

Ferrous Festival is produced in partnership with Hereford City Life and Hereford College of Arts.
