We are delighted to welcome the Willow Trust to the Gloucester Tall Ships and Adventure Festival.

Every year, 7,000 disabled and seriously ill people enjoy a time on the water on board its two broad-beam canal boats the Spirit of Freedom II and Leonard Matchan.

With full wheelchair access throughout, everyone is invited to come on board, join their skipper at the helm and take part in some festival family fun and games at the festival.

Spirit of Freedom II

You never know – you might find a Willow Trust pirate or two on board.

If you would like to find out more about The Willow Trust check out their website at www.willowtrust.org.

Although not a tall ship, we know the canal boats will be a big draw at the festival and will grace the waterfront alongside our larger vessels such as the Matthew, Grayhound and the TS Royalist.
