Designer Celia Birtwell to perform museum’s grand re-opening and jewellery extravaganza

Andrew Logan’s infamous Annual Grand Re-opening and Jewellery Extravaganza returns to his Museum of Sculpture in Mid Wales on Bank Holiday Sunday, August 25.

The museum, located in the village of Berriew, near Welshpool, will be re-opened by special guest Celia Birtwell, CBE, influential and era-defining textile and fashion designer, at 6pm.

Each year, the museum ceremoniously re-opens its doors, remembering the first time it did so in 1991.  The Jewellery Shows, part of this annual celebration, are key to Logan’s portfolio of work, have inspired Comme des Garcons catwalk shows and been performed in Azerbaijan, Latvia, Russia, Liverpool and Berriew.


This year’s show is a tribute to the late Andy D, who created the music for many of the shows and died suddenly in late July.

Volunteer models dance interpretively to Andy’s specially created music adorned in Logan’s jewellery in a performance that won’t be forgotten in a hurry and building to a glorious crescendo. The museum is planning a show that Andy D would have been proud of.

Jewellery Show tickets are £6 and includes a free drink.  Advance tickets can be bought from the Andrew Logan website (http://andrew-logan.myshopify.com/collections/tickets-for-events), or in person at either the museum or R. H. Bunners, Arthur Street, Montgomery.

The museum is open 12-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout June, July, August and September and by arrangement.  Entry is £3 (concessions £1.50) and family tickets £8.
