Gloucester Tall Ships Festival 2017
"Gloucester Tall Ships" by James M Pilgrim
Take a step back in time for Gloucester Tall Ships Festival 2017.
Traditional sail takes over Gloucester docks for Gloucester Tall Ships Festival 2017. It’s an event known to have inspired Hollywood producers to choose Gloucester Docks as a location to film the 2016 blockbuster Alice Through the Looking Glass, and you too will be able to step aboard and see these tall ships first hand, experience live battle re-enactments in the docks and more!
Though there’s been no official word just yet, this event may coincide with Gloucester Shanty Festival, another must see event that’ll make being around tall ships just that little bit more special.
Still not convinced? Our crack team of Tall Ships Events know-it-alls went in 2015 and we’d do it again in a flash!
Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
