Moira Canal Festival

Title Moira Canal Festival
Organiser Ashby Canal Trust

Ashby Canal Trust is holding the 20th Moira Canal Festival at the Grade 2 listed historic Moira Furnace, on the banks of the restored Ashby Canal in North West Leicestershire, DE12 6AT.

There'll be D-Day Darlings, Britain's Got Talent Finalists in 2018, who will recreate all the old wartime songs. This will be to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the festival, and also our contribution to May’s VE day events.

A Battle of Britain Flypast will be worth looking out for, and there will be boats, Morris dancing, falconry displays, children's entertainment, historic vehicles, a wide range of stalls and exhibits, entertainment marquee, bar and refreshments.  There will also be the annual Moira Canal Festival Duck Race along the Ashby Canal!

The event is on the isolated, restored length of Ashby Canal.

Trailboaters are welcome - see the Moira Canal Festival website for a booking form.
