The East End Canal Festival will be held on Saturday 16 – Sunday 17 July at the Art Pavilion, Mile End Park. The event will celebrate and promote the canals as a community asset for the East End.
The Festival builds on the work of the East End Canal Heritage Project, run by Laburnum Boat Club and supported by funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Festival will showcase the project’s work uncovering the stories and images of the Regent’s and Hertford Union Canals over the last almost 200 years. A host of other activities include boat trips, workshop, an art exhibition and stalls.
