SUPPORTING & PROMOTING EVENTS

THE EVENTS & FESTIVALS IN GLOUCESTER ARE RAPIDLY DEVELOPING A REPUTATION REGIONALLY ADN NATIONALLY AND ARE ESTABLISHED FAVOURITES LOCALLY.

SUPPORTING & PROMOTING EVENTS

The events and festivals in Gloucester are rapidly developing a reputation regionally and nationally and are established favourites locally. Over the last few years numerous events have added vibrancy – boosting reputation and footfall for the whole city.

Research across the UK has shown that people need a tangible experience to entice them back to the high street. Events such as SoMAC, Gloucester Tall Ships festival, Gloucester Goes Retro, Art in The City and the Gloucester Quays’ calendar of events are doing just that and Gloucester BID propose to expand upon their success with the delivery of a structured calendar of high quality events to build on and compliment those already taking place in the city.
