Gloucester Tall Ships Festival

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Gloucester Tall Ships Festival 2015 promises to be a memorable day out for the whole family, featuring a flotilla of stunning sailing vessels and plenty of waterside entertainment.

It’s all hands on deck at Gloucester Docks from Saturday 23 to Monday 25 May 2015, when the award-winning Tall Ships Festival returns, expected to bring in excess of 80,000 visitors with it.

Following the success of the 2013 event, the biennial festival will once again see one of Gloucester’s most popular attractions transformed, giving festival-goers a taste of the sights and sounds of the historic docks as it was 100 years ago.

Visitors can look forward to seeing a flotilla of sailing vessels along with waterside entertainment for all ages to enjoy, including a host of wandering living history characters and marauding pirates, live music, arts, crafts and food stalls and much more.

The inaugural Gloucester Tall Ships Festival was launched in 2007 to lift the spirits of local residents, following the devastating floods that hit the city and the country, and has since won several awards, including silver in South West Tourism’s Best Event category – with this year’s event expected to surpass all others.

See the Gloucestershire Whitsun half term guide for more great events in the county.
