Gloucester Tall Ships Festival is a celebration of the city, of our community and of our global connections. It has proudly taken place on a grand scale since 2007, when it was founded in the wake of devastating floods in Gloucester. To keep the event going at this scale we need lots of amazing helpers and that's where you come in!
