To mark the Tour of Britain’s visit to Gloucestershire, music and entertainment are planned for the start in Tewkesbury and the finish in Gloucester.

Stage seven, which takes place on Saturday 9 September, will start in Tewkesbury at 11am, with riders being introduced to the crowd from 10am on the podium in Church Street.

Circus entertainer Thomas Trilby will be entertaining crowds in Tewkesbury on his stilt bike ahead of the race, before moving to Gloucester for the finish.

The race is due to finish in Gloucester at around 3pm. Big screens will be showing full ITV4 coverage of the race from the start.

There will be live music in Gloucester Docks with several performers set to entertain the crowds.

A BMX stunt team will showcase their skills in the city. They will be joined by smoothie bikes, which challenge riders to use pedal power to blend their smoothie, and Cycle Scalextric, where pedal power is used to make the cars race.

There will also be a host of community cycling stands at both the start and finish, as well as a number of events and ride that some of our junior cycle clubs have arranged that will be riding through the finish before the race arrives.

There are a number of events taking place in Gloucester on the day which may impact on movement around the city. Everyone is encouraged to allow extra travel time and to be mindful of the road closures in operation.
