Festivals & events

A waterside festival isn't just about boats and water, there's plenty of colourful activity, flags and fun...
The spirit of festival is at the heart of our colourful waterways - any excuse will do for a boat gathering or a canalside party! As you would expect from any good festival, there's usually ice-cream, veggie burgers, hot dogs, the aroma of ground coffee beans and, of course, the indomitable beer tent.
