5th September 2020
Working in partnership with Alan Mayatt, the Crier to the Cathedral City and Port of Gloucester, in 2020 we presented our first ever socially distanced Gloucester Day.
Gloucester Day traditionally marks the launch of the festival and raises morale in the City. Usually parades draw in the crowds, ceremonial officers circumnavigate the streets and the city comes alive with stalls and stands.
This year every effort will be made to keep the spirit of Gloucester Day alive in a socially distanced way.
At 2pm the public were invited to collectively clap for the NHS and the City’s many Covid 19 support groups, who over the past months have served the community. The clapping also gave thanks to the many in retail on the frontline on a daily basis.
Those attending also had the opportunity to visit stalls for charitable Auxiliary political and faith groups that have played a proactive part in the life of Gloucester.
A film was created for Gloucester Day 2020 called ‘A Day In The Life Of Alan Myatt – The Town Crier’, so those unable to celebrate Gloucester Day in the city centre could experience it from home.
