Gloucester Goes Retro 2020 cancelled


The popular vintage car, fashion and music event has been cancelled for August 2020 due to Covid-19.


Gloucester Goes Retro 2020, the city’s vintage car, fashion and music festival due to take place on Saturday 29 August, has been cancelled. The decision was made by the event organisers, the Right Worshipful Mayor of Gloucester Cllr Colin Organ and Gloucester City Council, due to the continuing impact of COVID-19.

With some social distancing measures likely to be needed once lockdown has been lifted, Cllr Organ says that the decision was made to “protect” those who attend.

“It is sad that we have decided to cancel one of Gloucester’s most popular and busiest events of the year. It’s likely that social distancing restrictions will be in place for some time to come, so our priority is the health and wellbeing of residents, visitors, exhibitors and staff.

"However, we will take this opportunity to make Gloucester Goes Retro a really special event for everyone to enjoy in August 2021, and look forward to welcoming everyone back next year.”
