Would You Ride A Camel In Gloucester?

6 November 2014, 00:00

If you've ever thought I wish I could ride a camel through Gloucester.... well now's your chance.

Marketing Gloucester's looking for three 'kings' to ride real camels for this year's Lantern Parade.

This year's parade on Sunday 16th November will use a theme based on the Christmas Carol 'We Three Kings'.

The lucky trio will lead the procession on a camel from Southgate Street towards the Cross, down Westgate Street to then turn down College Street on towards Gloucester Cathedral.

There are some restrictions on who enters - you have to be over the age of 18, be reasonably fit and weigh less than 14 stone.

It'll also see more than 100 city primary school children walk through the streets with the lanterns they have been building alongside local artists.

There will also be chance to see the camels before the parade - They'll be in Eastgate Street at the Light Night Market from noon until 3.30pm.

So If you fancy it - answer the question 'What you would do if you were king of the city for a day?' and email it to Marketing Gloucester on mhairi@marketinggloucester.co.uk by Wednesday 12th November.
