Burnley Canal Festival set to draw thousands of people when it cruises back into town next month
and live on Freeview channel 276
The free family-friendly event returns to Finsley Gate Wharf and along the towpath from 11am to 5pm on Sunday, August 27th.
A raft of fun will be on offer, including arts and crafts workshops, a towpath quest, performances, a makers market, canoes, music, food, a bar, boat trips and more.
Special VIP Mother Nature will sweep on down to help catch any pesky litterers, bringing her cheeky sidekick, the Fox, too, and giving a small natural gift to those who help her tidy up.
Organisers are calling for donations to their crowd-funder to help them gain a grant from Lancashire County Council to keep this and next year’s event free.
