Burnley Canal Festival 2018

25-26 August 2018

Thousands of people saw the Leeds & Liverpool Canal through fresh eyes as the sixth annual Burnley Canal Festival drew teeming crowds of visitors at August Bank Holiday weekend 2017.  We estimate that more than 12,000 people visited the event over the two days and 2,500+ had a go at a hands-on activity, everything from circus skills to canoeing with lots of arts and crafts to try out too.

The planning for 2018 has begun, so get the dates in your diary.  We will keep you updated as plans firm up.  Join the Festival Facebook page to make sure you’re among the first to know!

Burnley Canal Festival is co-produced by Mid Pennine Arts and Deco Publique in collaboration with the volunteers of the Festival Committee representing local communities.
