Banbury Canal Festival 2023
Weekend 30th September to 1st October 2023 is Banbury Canal Festival held around the Oxford Canal in the town centre.
Now a two day event this was previously Banbury Canal Day, originated by the Inland Waterways Association to celebrate 50 years of the IWA in 1996. It later became an annual event. Banbury Canal Festival is run by the town council. Tooley’s Boatyard is at the epicentre of events taking place along the canal. Tooley’s will be open throughout the festival (11am to 5pm each day).
Boat Trips on Dancing Duck will be running throughout the festival, but please remember to book your place on-line. Book Here or contact Tooley’s Boatyard in opening hours. This year we expect to bring in a second boat Comet to meet demand over the weekend. Comet is part of the fleet of hire-boats run by Twyford Wharf Narrowboats: https://narrowboatholidays.com.
There is a programme of events in Tooley’s Dry Dock starting on Friday (eve of festival) running through the following weekend. More information and booking details here.
