Turn back the clock to enjoy nostalgia, music and classic cars
THE city will be stepping back in time as Gloucester Goes Retro takes place on Saturday.
The Gate Streets and Gloucester Docks will exhibit cars from different cultural eras and will include vehicles by Aston Martin, Jensen, Bentley, Jaguar, Triumph, Morris and Alvis to name just a few.
As well as all of this, members from the cast of the classic BBC comedy series ‘Allo ‘Allo will be attending the event and encouraging fans to have a chat or grab a picture, there will be a number of other characters from television and film making their way around the city.
Gloucester Goes Retro is sponsored by Pro Global and Mccarthy & Stone. It is organised by Gloucester City Council, Marketing Gloucester and supported by Gloucester BID.
Meanwhile, Cavaliers and Roundheads will confront each other in Gloucester Park on the same day with members of the English Civil War Society.
