Welcome to the home of the Carnival Glass Society (UK) 

This UK based Society was formed by a small group of collectors in 1982 and has grown to have members in countries across the world. We are passionate about collecting, spreading awareness and appreciating the beauty of Carnival Glass. We encourage research into its history, arrange events for our members and circulate information through our publications.
