May events: Have a nautical time at Gloucester Tall Ships Festival

Gloucester, Gloucestershire

Set sail to Gloucester as the award-winning Gloucester Tall Ships makes its return voyage to the UK's most inland port in May.

Five tall ships will sail into the docks and moor up on the quayside for all to see. There will be a raft of entertainment featuring: marauding pirates (including Captain Jack Sparrow); gravity jet suit displays; a wakeboard competition between industry pros; fun games for children and grown-ups; and a food market. There will also be live music stages featuring an eclectic selection of local bands and singers to keep the crowds entertained.

In addition, thrill-seekers can test their mettle with an exhilirating zip wire experience, stretching from one side of the docks to the other.
