Our City voices programme brings the whole city together through a variety of events which fuse together talks, exhibitions, workshops re-enactments, performances and much more.

Ideal for both regular festival visitors and those joining the festival for the first time, adults to enjoy on their own, with their families or part of a small group, and for families to enjoy with their children these events really are for everyone to enjoy in a way that is relevant to them.

Our City Voices programme encourages you to explore your history and learn how it impacts your life today, try your hand at creating something in a workshop, visit an exhibition and become inspired by what you see, watch a film and deepen your understanding or converse with other people to understand different points of view.

This year City Voices programme will be slimmer than usual but we are creating a library of digital content for you to enjoy, as part of the Gloucester Looking Up programme funded by Heritage England.
