Living History

Adventures from the high seas and bygone days from the Victorian period will be brought to life at the Gloucester Tall Ships festival. Prepare to be wowed by the swordplay and stunts of the loveable rogue, Captain Jack, and his buccaneering brethren in the not-to-be-missed shows running several times each day. Captain Jack loves nothing more than getting the whole crowd involved – young and old – so who knows, you may even become part of the fun and frolics!

As one of the best preserved Victorian inland ports in the country, it couldn’t be more fitting to have wonderful characters from that famous era parading around in their old-fashioned but distinctive garb during the festival.

Need some food and drink? There will be stalls galore serving up all manner of scrumptious delights for young taste buds!
