Canals Festival

This year's Canals Festival takes place at the weekend of 31st May and 1st June, 2014.

In its twenty first year, thousands of people have come to enjoy a weekend on the water. Visitors can join a guided tour of the historic potters’ mill engine and see"Princess" beam engine in steam.

There will be a host of attractions to entertain all ages - visitors will also be able to enjoy activities including live music, stalls and a selection of traditional boats.

The festival, which has been runing since 1993, is one of the biggest community events held in the city of Stoke on Trent. In recent years the event has attracted audiences of around 8000 people from the local area and the boating community.

This year's Festival is being organised by IWA and Etruria Boat Group Volunteers; please see
