The final weekend of the annual Gloucester Blues Festival always features a weekend-long outdoor (mostly) blues extravaganza at Cafe Rene. The open-air stage is set up near the ruin of Greyfriars and people of all ages gather on the surrounding grassy banks to enjoy the music and, perchance, partake of the beer and cider festival, barbecue and hog roast.
This picture was taken at the festival in 2011, when the sun shone. Hopefully this recent spell of good weather will continue/ return for this year’s festival, which takes place from 27 July to 4 August. The full line up for the festival can be seen here.
