ILLUSTRIOUS actors Timothy West and his wife Prunella Scales are set to attend The Waterways Festival 2011 on Friday 29th July.

Long time members of the IWA, the famous acting couple have enjoyed a long love affair with Britain’s inland waterways.   Owning their own narrow boat, the pair have enjoyed many boating holidays over the last 30 years, exploring the UK’s glorious canal network with family and friends.

Harry Arnold, this year’s Festival Chairman said: “We are absolutely thrilled that filming commitments allow Timothy and Prunella to join us at the festival.  They have been supporters of The Inland Waterways Association (IWA) for many years and I’m sure that festival goers will give them a very warm welcome!”
