Norbury Canal Festival 2018

05 May 2018 - 07 May 2018 - Newport Shropshire

what's happening on the day

This year’s Festival will be on both sides of the canal, so as well as the traditional craft and food stalls and refreshments in the garden of the Norbury Junction Inn, there will be more stalls and activities spread along the canalside, around Norbury Wharf and in the Canal & River Trust yard.

On the water the rally moorings are now fully booked. There will be many boat traders, including the very popular Cheese Boat, and they will be joined by a gathering of other narrow boats, with an award for the Best Looking Boat. A narrowboat will be open for the public to look over so that they can see the sort of hire boats that are available from Norbury Wharf. The Shrewsbury & Newport Canals Trust will again be operating boat trips along the canal to give people the experience of seeing it from the water.

In the large marquee, alongside the Cider Festival, there will be a Bands night on Saturday night, featuring Savannah and Bon Accord. On Sunday there will be a top class Comedy Night.

The traditional Sunday canalside church service is at 15.00 this year on Norbury Wharf quayside. Parking will be just a short walk from the canal and organised by the Air Cadets once again.
