The Historic @gloucesterdocks will be shown in all their splendour over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend 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.
Setting Sail on Saturday 25 May 2019 – Monday 27 May 2019! 
Adventures from the high seas and bygone days from the Victorian period will be brought to life at the Gloucester Tall Ships festival. As one of the best preserved Victorian inland ports in the country, it couldn’t be more fitting to have wonderful characters from that famous era parading around in their old-fashioned but distinctive garb during the festival.

Entertainment for all! As well as marvelling at the awe-inspiring tall ships you’ll be able to spy pirates sword fighting, catch a sea shanty or two, try your hand at a variety of fun games, and visit fantastic food and drink and craft stalls, 
Keep a lookout for the popular Captain Jack and his pirate pals as they treat kids to some dramatic duels and swashbuckling shows throughout the festival.

Live Music Stage! The Gloucester Shanty Festival will provide young inquisitive minds with a look at folk and maritime traditions around the city centre. And for those youngsters who fancy a spot of singing and dancing, local bands will be playing on the live music stage!

Buy an access all areas ticket to the amazing Gloucester Tall Ships & Adventure for just ÂŁ10 (+ booking fee). Any children under 12 accompanied by an adult go FREE. .
