IWA Festival of Water – Pelsall

The IWA Festival of Water 2016 takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend.  This year it’s at Pelsall at the junction of the Wyrley & Essington Canal and the Cannock Extension Canal, towards the northern edge of the Birmingham Canal Navigations.

Waterway Routes is already there.  The Cheese boat will be behind us and the Jam Butty in front.

Entertainment on the common too.

There will be land based entertainment as well as the trading boats.

The Waterway Recovery Group volunteers are busy tackling all the impossible jobs, like relocating a portable toilet which is too heavy to lift, using a pallet and a mini tractor.  I wonder if anyone was in it.

Please come and say hello if you are visiting the show.

    Kari: Try asking the IWA as it is their festival. My understanding is that the local council did no provide as much help as other councils have in previous years so it may not return.
