The annual Festival of Water is coming to Ilkeston over the 2017 August Bank Holiday Weekend and over 100 boats will be moored along the Erewash Canal.
Join the weekend festivities and book your boat or campsite pitch for just £30, including evening entertainment. To book either fill in our new online booking form and pay using credit / debit card or PayPal or download and return the booking form.
Please note that the maximum draught for vessels on the canal is 4’ 0” (albeit there will probably be some silted areas that might be a struggle to get through) and not any lesser depth which may be quoted elsewhere.
The IWA Festival of Water will be free to attend and will have an array of attractions on and off the water providing a fun day out for all the family. Many boats, including leisure, trade, heritage and working narrowboats, are expected and there will be a wide range of craft stalls and activities on site. There will also be a market and fundraising stalls and IWA would like to hear from boaters, charities and local groups who are interested in having a stall and fundraising for their chosen cause.
