Impact of Coronavirus on our 2020 event season

Canal Festival, Bonfire and fireworks display and Christmas lights switch on - cancelled for 2020

It is with great disappointment that the decision has been made to cancel the Canal Festival, Bonfire and fireworks display and Christmas lights switch on for 2020.

The health and safety of all stallholders, fairground workers, entertainers and visitors are extremely important to us. With the updates that we may see a second wave, it has become clear we couldn’t run the event safely, following social distancing regulations, with such a large gathering of people.
