Goodwood Revival 2014 to get Stonehenge Replica

Published 18 August 2014

A larger-than-life replica of Stonehenge will wow the crowds at this year’s Goodwood Revival in West Sussex on 12-14 September.

Commissioned by Lord March to be bigger than the original (for greater visibility), the installation will be in place exclusively for the Revival weekend in celebration of the pre-historic monument’s 99 years in safe hands. It was bought at auction in 1915 by Cecil Chubb for £6600 (about £500,000 in today’s money). 

Some say it was bought to stop it being shipped to America, and it is suggested that the Goodwood version may be offered up for sale after the Revival to offer potential US buyers another chance to take Stonehenge stateside.

A number of druids will attend to mark the occasion and will be invited to enact rituals and ceremonies at the site – though the rain dance is banned.

Unlike the original, guests will be invited into the monument site, making it a must-visit UK ‘selfie’ destination this September.
