Event Details

Entirely illustrated by old photographs this talk by Tony Condor will bring together stories from behind the scenes. Docks life was busy, visiting narrow boats came from the Midlands to mix with local Craft. Sailing ships came up the canal to unload. On the docks gangs of men worked to move the cargoes into warehouses and the businessmen sold on the grain and timber. From this mass of people come the stories of every day life, special events, and the tragedies that life throws up. This talk is fully accessible for wheelchair users.

During the Heritage Open Days Talks, Gloucester Civic Trust tour guides will bring to life some of the characters and events that have shaped Gloucester’s fascinating 2,000 years of history. During these free events Covid-19 prevention measures will be observed to provide a safe environment for all. Please adhere to social distancing and wear a face mask.
