The Garden Party is FREE to the public and will take place over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, from Saturday 7th to Monday 9th April, in the spectacular dockside setting of Gloucester Quays and the adjacent Gloucester Quays Outlet Shopping Centre.

This will be a quality experience that captures the imagination and appeals to all ages. Advertising exposure will be supported with a campaign to target local and regional visitors along with tourists. Attendance and footfall is expected to be extremely high and competition for stalls will be intense, so dont miss out; book your place at the Garden Party everyones going to be talking about!
