Caerleon Arts Festival 2009 - July 10th to July 19th
2004 Dave Johnson
The 2009 Sculpture Symposium took place in the Hanbury Field Friday 17th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of July. Caerleon Arts Festival had seen all six sculptors in earlier years when the themes included the Romans and Britons, King Arthur, the River Usk and Recycling.
