Events in Gloucester

To find a really interesting day out, you must try events in Gloucester. Gloucester is the home of Gloucester Rugby Club which is the top division - featuring world class rugby.

My favourite entertainment is the Gloucester Blues Festival which often hosts some surprising world stars. Check it out to see some of your childhood heroes. The festival is usually held in July, or sometime in the summer.

Gloucester Guild Hall has some of the best sound acoustics I've ever heard, well worth a trip to catch a cultural show.

Something which is no longer an event is the annual elver catch. This used to be a source of delicious culinary experience, but now the French and Russians get them all.

Dragon Boat Regatta at Gloucester docks is fun and free. Who needs Henley? A great trip for the kids.
