Gloucester Goes Retro


Next dates

Sorry, there are no future dates available

After a one-year hiatus, the vintage car, fashion and music festival is back! One of the highlights of the city’s vibrant festival calendar, Gloucester Goes Retro features over 500 classic vehicles filling the historic Gate Streets and Gloucester Docks.

The streets will be lined with historic and classic vehicles from all over the country; themed with memories of times past with music, fashion, food, businesses, banks, shops and reenactors all playing their part! 

You will find famous car brands from yesteryear including Aston Martin, Jensen, Bentley, Triumph, Morris and Alvis to name just a few. There are time-honoured vehicles from the turn of the last century through to the Roaring Twenties, from the War Years to the gleaming chrome of the fifties, the iconic designs of the Swinging Sixties and classic sports cars from the eighties. 

For music and dance enthusiasts, visit the Gloucester Goes Retro Stage where you can enjoy vintage acts and join in with swing dancing.

This is a free event supporting many charities with lots to see and do, so do come dressed to impress and enjoy a great day out!

Saturday 28th August
