EVENTS

GLOUCESTER MARITIME FESTIVAL & GLOUCESTER TALL SHIPS

Saturday 25th May 2019

The Historic Gloucester Docks will be shown in all their splendour over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend in 2019 as they play host to the award-winning Gloucester Tall Ships & Adventure festival and are chock full of fabulous activities for all the family to enjoy. Adventures from the high seas and bygone days from the Victorian period will be brought to life at the Gloucester Tall Ships festival. What makes the event so distinctive is its setting in the UK’s most inland port surrounded by beautifully-preserved Victorian warehouses. Tall ships will sail into the docks and moor up on the quayside for visitors to see. There will be a raft of live entertainment featuring marauding pirates, nautical activities, a food market plus two museums on the docks site. There are live music stages featuring a selection of local bands and singers as well as the return of the essential Gloucester Shanty Festival. The first was launched following the devastating floods that hit Gloucestershire in 2007. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, bolstering its reputation as the best Spring Bank Holiday events in the South West and an excellent value day for one and all.
