Event Details

Every year Gloucester History Festival launches with the much loved Gloucester Day, celebrating a proud city steeped in history with a passion for its future.

Working in partnership with Alan Mayatt, the Crier to the Cathedral City and Port of Gloucester, the City will come alive with joyous activities to lift its spirits. With social distanced measures in place, the day’s festivities will include street stalls, re-enactments, talks, tours and marching drums.

At 2pm there will be a one minute Clap for Gloucester. The applause will give thanks to the businesses, key workers and volunteers who have helped the City through the current Covid 19 Pandemic. Councillors will also be visiting local businesses throughout the day to show their gratitude.

To celebrate 200 years since the linkage of Gloucester Sharpness and Stroudwater canals, the finale will take place at the Tommy Nielson Boat Yard and Gloucester Brewery with speeches and toasts to Gloucester’s past and future.
