GLOUCESTER Waterways Museum starts the season with its events during May, including cruises on the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal.

Local author Chris Witts talks about ‘Working on the Waterways', with the first showing of the DVD version of the much-acclaimed 1962 ‘Robert Reid Reports' film of barge traffic from Sharpness, through Gloucester Docks, and the Severn to the Midlands.  Plus, torchlight tours of the museum. £10 including refreshments. This is at 7pm on Friday 13th.


The museum's popular cruises aboard the Dunkirk Little Ship Queen Boadicea 2 have now resumed. The boat leaves from outside the Museum at 12.00, 1.30pm and 2.30pm for 45 minutes trips with commentary through Gloucester Docks and along the Gloucester-Sharpness canal. Various tickets from £4.95.

Sunday tea and cakes are offered on the 1st, 8th and 29th of May aboard the King Arthur, with bookings from £6.50.
