The hugely popular Tall Ships Festival returns to Gloucester Docks this weekend, running from Saturday 23rd – Monday 25th May. This biennial festival will see Gloucester’s Docks transformed, enabling visitors to have a taste of the sights and sounds of the historic docks as it was 100 years ago.
Visitors will be able to board the tall shops, enjoy live entertainment including swashbuckling Captain Jack and his Pirate Crew, listen to live music, and explore a food and craft market. There will also be a Stone Carving Festival taking place.
Here is an insight into the 2013 Gloucester Tall Ships Festival.
Admission to the Tall Ships is £2 for adults with Under 16’s free. Admission is charged on entrance to the Docks.
