Leicestershire Branch

We currently have an exciting 'once-in-a-generation' waterside regeneration opportunity in Leicester, but we need to ensure that any development is done sensitively. Leics IWA have submitted a 'constructively critical' response to theĀ  Waterside Supplementary Planning Document consultation.


Forthcoming Events

In addition to the Leics IWA events listed below, it is worth keeping an eye on the interesting Soar Boating Club events list here. The Club is a corporate IWA member.

Leicester Riverside Festival

3rd & 4th June 2017
This  year, Leicester City Council have asked the Leicestershire Branch of the IWA to take over the boat bookings for the Riverside Festival. 2017 is the 20th anniversary of the first Riverside Festival and the 50th anniversary of the 1967 IWA National Rally in Leicester, so we are hoping for a big turnout of boaters!
