Gloucester Docks Tall Ships Festival

The leader of Gloucester City Council, Councillor Paul James, has said that he is hoping that the Tall Ships Festival in Gloucester this August will be the best ever. The first Tall Ships Festival was held in 2007 following the floods. It gave the area’s economy a great boost. The next festival was held in 2009, and was attended by TV star Gok Wan. Around 60-75,000 visited the festival, adding £2 million to the local economy.
