Chesterfield Canal Festival 2010
Following our successful festival in May 2009 at Kiveton
Park, we are going to Worksop in 2010.
Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th July 2010
Worksop Rugby Club, by Morse Lock
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
FREE ENTRY FOR THE PUBLIC
The Festival is part of Bassetlaw Arts Fortnight.
We are still sorting out what will be on show, but we expect the following:
- Visiting boats,
- Boat trips,
- Canal Societies,
- Canal Ware,
- Children's rides,
- Carlo the Clown,
- dozens of Stalls plus
- Food and Drink including a Real Ale Bar.
We are hoping to have Canoeing and Sailing on Sandhills Lake
(known locally as Godfrey's Pond) which is on the opposite side
of the canal.
One large marquee will house entertainment and exhibitions
mounted as part of Bassetlaw Arts Fortnight.
In addition, we are hoping to have several boat builders exhibiting.
The Festival will be free. It is an easy ten minute walk from
the centre of Worksop. There will be car parking on the site.
It will be signposted from the A57 (Worksop bypass) which is easily
accessible from the M1 and the A1.
Over the coming months, we will be putting more information on this site.
