Gloucester Day Parade

Saturday 2 September, 11am – 3pm (approx)
Gloucester City Centre
This event will begin with a parade through the four main gated streets and will be led by the Mayor and Sheriff of Gloucester, in full Civic Regalia. The parade will begin with a thanksgiving service led by The Right Revd Rachel Treweek, Bishop of Gloucester, in St Mary de Crypt church and will end with a reception at Brunswick Baptist Church, Southgate Street after the parade for all citizens of Gloucester. This event is designed to install and promote pride in our historic city and its rich heritage, and to reinstate the original Gloucester Day celebration; the lifting of the siege of Gloucester in 1643. This event was celebrated annually for centuries and Gloucester became known as ‘the city saved by God’.
