Entertainment for all!
As well as marvelling at the awe-inspiring tall ships you’ll be able to spy pirates sword fighting, catch a sea shanty or two, try your hand at a variety of fun games, and visit fantastic food and drink and craft stalls, plus lots, lots more. Keep a lookout for the popular Captain Jack and his pirate pals as they treat kids to some dramatic duels and swashbuckling shows throughout the festival.
Need some food and drink? There will be stalls galore serving up all manner of scrumptious delights for young taste buds.
Live Music Stage!
The Gloucester Shanty Festival will provide young inquisitive minds with a look at folk and maritime traditions around the city centre. And for those youngsters who fancy a spot of singing and dancing, local bands will be playing on the live music stage!
Adventures from the high seas and bygone days from the Victorian period will be brought to life at the Gloucester Tall Ships festival. 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.
