Norbury Canal Festival 2017 Cancelled

It is with great regret that the Shrewsbury & Newport Canals Trust have had to cancel the 2017 Norbury Canal Festival.

This is because it has proved impossible to organise suitable visitor parking this year. After being advised that the field used last year was not available, considerable efforts were made by the organising team to find alternative parking but without success. Everyone who had already booked, including all boaters and stallholders, has been advised of the situation.

SNCT have identified a solution that we can put in place for 2018, but this will not be possible this year as the field in question is committed to agricultural use for the period when it would be needed.
