Gloucester Day 2022 details can be found in the 2022 Festival Brochure


The Cross Streets of Gloucester will come alive with stalls, stands, lively performances (on the stage on Southgate Street) and all the pomp and ceremony of the traditional Gloucester Day parade through the four main gated streets, led by the Mayor and Sheriff of Gloucester, in full Civic Regalia.

Gloucester Day traditionally marks the launch of the festival and raises morale in the City. The Gloucester Day event is the reinstatement of the original Gloucester Day – a day of celebration on the lifting of the siege of Gloucester – in 1643. This occasion was celebrated annually for centuries.

Working in partnership with Alan Myatt, the Crier to the Cathedral City and Port of Gloucester, in 2020 we presented our first ever socially distanced Gloucester Day and we were delighted to be able to start the 2021 Festival with Gloucester Day as a live event!
