It's official.. Gloucester Tall Ships Festival is back
It's official - the aweard-winning Gloucester Tall Ships Festival is back for 2013.
The impressive four day event at Gloucester Docks is set to attract some 120,000 people.
It will run on the late May Bank Holiday weekend from May 24 to 27.
Thousands of tons of silt were dredged from the Docks in January to ensure free passage for the ships later this year.

The festival, organised by Gloucester City Council, attracted thousands of people when it was last held in 2011 – but several vessels were grounded on the mud.
Back in 2010, the festival was axed by Marketing Gloucester, the people behind the event, for the year because of building works in the Docks.
But this year promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
As well as the attraction of the tall ships themselves, there is also much to see and do around the festival site.
There are living history characters, marauding pirates, live music, arts, crafts and food stalls and kids' activities.
Plus there are the adjacent Gloucester Waterways and Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museums and outlet shopping at Gloucester Quays, all based around Gloucester's historic docks.
