The bascules of Tower Bridge will raise to allow ARC Gloria to pass in to the Upper Pool – her masts fully dressed with her crew.
Join the crowds celebrating Colombia Day on Potters Fields Park (as part of The Riverside Festival) with stalls selling delicious traditional dishes, Tall Ship themed workshops for children, Colombian music and dance.
There are around 150,000 people of Colombian descent living in London, and there may well be a few of them here. The ARC Gloria, the official flagship of the Colombian Navy, will hoist the national flag, while on dry land there will be music, dancing and delicious native food.
