Gloucester Tall Ships 2007
Gloucester Docks to host Tall Ships Festival
Gloucester Heritage Urban Regeneration Company (GHURC) has announced exciting plans for a Tall Ships Festival at Gloucester Docks from 25-28 October 2007.
The event, which will be funded by the South West of England Regional Development Agency (RDA), is the first of its kind in Gloucester for many years wand could attract as many as six tall ships in the Docks. Alongside the festival in the Docks, a range of additional events and attractions will be held quayside to give visitors, families and residents of the city a weekend of unforgettable sights and sounds, showing how Gloucester would have looked over 100 years ago.
Greg Smith, Chair of GHURC, said: "This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Gloucester to the world, putting tall ships back where they belong; in the heart of our great City. True regeneration is about bringing excitement and enjoyment back into the heart of the city as well as jobs and new opportunities for all, and this will be a long weekend of celebration. I can't wait to see some of England greatest ship sailing into the heart of our City."
Chris Foley, head of operations in Gloucestershire for the South West RDA, added: "The Tall Ships Festival will be a great event for Gloucester, its residents and visitors to the city. It will help celebrate our maritime history and with the on-going regeneration of Gloucester Docks, the event could signal the start of a significant boost to the local economy."
Gloucester City Council Leader, Paul James, commented:" Gloucester is a city with amazing potential and the Docks is one of our greatest assets. This event will showcase what we have to offer while at the same time celebrating our rich history. The combination of the two will make this a truly spectacular and memorable event."
